Knox Asian Festival 2023
On Saturday, August 26, the 2023 Knox Asian Festival was hosted by the Asian Culture Center of Tennessee, Knoxville City, Knox County, and our Consulate-General of Japan in Nashville. The day was filled with many traditional and contemporary cultural events and activities from many different Asian countries and regions. The festival started with the morning Country Parade where participants in their national costumes walked along the World’s Fair Park. Our office operated a booth with Japanese fan decoration, a samurai photo stand, and information about the World Expo 2025 in Osaka. We appreciate the festival's contribution to the Japan-Tennessee and Japan-U.S. relationships. We look forward to co-organizing the festival again in the years to come.
