There will also be 17 of Seattle’s cultural entertainment groups performing that include Rachel Wong, Natya, OKK Taiko, Au Lac Vovinam-Lion Dance, and many others.

In addition to the live performances, there will also be a special hum bow eating contest with contestants such as Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, Uwajimaya chairman Tomio Moriguchi, King 5 anchor Lori Matsukawa, Ben Bridge Jewelers founder Herb Bridge, community activist Bob Santos, and more.

Since 2002, the annual festival has been produced by Asian Pacific Directors Coalition in partnership with Seattle Center.
