Every year, the Taste of Asia food pavilion gets better and better. This year, we've added more vendors which means more variety, both of globe-hopping Asian cuisines and some good ol' American favorites.
You'll find foods from Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, Taiwan, Japan, China and lots more. We're even introducing out first-ever Asian food truck, Manna From Heaven, where you can chow down on wonderful Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwiches. You'll find it hard to go back to Subway again....

The Performing Arts Stage is set for the 2011 festival, and the lineup is a fantastic showcase of the depth and breadth of Asian and Asian American talent in the Denver area.
Alongside the favorites that have fans have come to expect at CDBF, like Denver Taiko, Wendy Woo, Christina Yeh Dance Studio, Mudra Dance Studio and FACC, we're featuring some exciting newcomers this year. You'll see hip-hop dance crew Dance2Live (shown here), and a couple of alternative rock bands -- One Sun One Moon with Hmong and Laotian members, and Pearls For Breakfast featuring singer-songwriter Kenny Lee Young -- but also Doug Yoshimura and the Cheapsuits Blues Band and soulful rocker Jack Hadley, who spectators might recognize because he's played with Dwight Mark in recent years. This year Jack will showcase his own music. Other new performers include young Indian dancer Diya Deepak; Erhoopla, a unique duo that plays a traditional Chinese instrument; and Dudrim, a Korean drum group.
