2019 Detroit China Festival ||Hart Plaza. Detroit, MI. September 21rst. 11AM to 5PM

As a native Chinese woman, I have been an ambassador of the Chinese culture since the day I moved to America, 13 years ago. I am often shocked as to how little the world knows about the real, and modern China. It seems to me that all people know about China, is the old China Town, a weird Chinese accent and the American Chinese food. In the mind of most Westerners, we Chinese, are still living in the past. Lol!

In early 2018, I went back to China and spent a whole month there. Guess what? I felt that Americans are so behind with technology. Lol! Nowadays, Chinese don’t use credit cards or cash at all, everything is done through a phone. I mean, they don’t have the big and thick wallets like we all have here. The younger Chinese generation is more modern but it still keeps its traditional Chinese culture.

These three young gentleman from Detroit China Town are the perfect example of the young Chinese culture: Modern!

The 2019 Detroit China Festival will be larger in scope than the first. The DCF is a gathering of all things Chinese and Detroit culture related. You can watch these videos from last year to see how fun it is!

Hear directly from those founding people from Detroit China Town (DCT)!

The Detroit China festival (DCF) is a celebration of Chinese culture in the heart of Detroit. The DCF is the largest Asian themed festival in Detroit history, bringing together people from all walks of life to experience culture through food, music, dance, fashion, games and more! The mission of the DCF is two-fold: 

1.            To bring Chinese/Asian culture and people to the city of Detroit. (come see the city and see what we love!)

2.            To bring the people of Detroit to the Chinese/ Asian culture. (come experience culture and eat great food!)

We love Detroit and we love Chinese and Asian Culture, let’s create a space that expresses that passion together and see how far we can go!

Pretty exciting, right?
