The celebration takes place on the outside patio of Washington Park Library at 1316 Broad Street, Providence, RI. There will be tents if it rains or the celebration will move to the inside of the library.
On this second Saturday of the AAPI Heritage Month celebration, we will feature multiple dances from Southeast Asia. Please register for this event. Pre-registered patrons will get a free book, ABCs of Asian American History at the end of the day. Register today!
These dances tie us back to the homeland of the Cambodian Americans, whom we often call Southeast Asians. Southeast Asia includes eleven countries of its diverse cultures, according to Northern Illinois University, Center for Southeast Asian Studies.
We will focus on and learn about two of the Southeast Asian cultures: the Cambodian and Thai cultures.
The times of the performances are from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Each performance’s duration is not exact; please stay for the whole afternoon if you don’t want to miss any of the dances.
