The 2nd annual History San Jose/CHCP South Bay AAPI Festival is in the books. Thanks to everyone who helped make it successful and looking forward to making this event even better next year. Thanks to History San Jose (HSJ), Viet Museum, Japanese American Museum of San Jose, Mosaic America, and all the other great partners for this event. 

CHCP kicked off the event by inviting all the event participants to join a parade led by the Dragon and Lion Dance Teams through the park to the SJ Japanese Friendship Garden, Viet Museum, and back to the Chinese American Historical Museum and the center of the Lilian Gong-Guy Plaza where all the entertainment took place.

The first portion of the entertainment was arranged by CHCP.  Special thanks go to Leung's White Crane Dragon and Lion Dance Association, Kimberly Tom and her Kilo Project hip-hop Dance Group, Singer Flora Hui, TJ/Cambodian Dance, Off the Grid K-pop Dance Group, and to our emcee Ashlyn Tsui (2023 Miss Chinatown USA, 2023 Miss Talent, and 2024 Miss Bay Area Teen USA).
