Festival History & Background

In 1993, the first Pacific Rim Street Fest was presented in Old Sacramento by the restauranteur, Frank Fat, and community groups. With his ever optimistic spirit, he was able to create a coalition of community leaders and succeed in seeing his dream of a street festival come to pass.

For the past eighteen years the festival has displayed the richness and diversity of many Pacific Rim cultures through cultural programs, entertainment, art and food. The event also enhances the community's knowledge of Asian/Pacific Island cultures in a fun and positive environment.

The Pacific Rim Street Fest has been CANCELLED for 2017

Unfortunately, and with profound apologies, the Asian Pacific Rim Foundation and the PRSF Committee have chosen to cancel this year's Festival. We struggled with this decision, knowing it will have an affect on our sponsors, as well as on the public, the vendors, and countless others. 

The funding that supports the Street Fest was substantially less than necessary to produce a successful event, and although we worked hard to find a way to proceed, after considerable discussion we agreed that the cancellation was unavoidable. 

We will take this time to regroup once more, reconsider our fundraising strategies and begin to plan for the future of the Pacific Rim Street Festival. Your support and commitment to the event are deeply appreciated, and we did not make this decision without considering its substantial impact on our communities. 

We look forward to serving our Pacific Rim communities in the near future.

Sincerely,

Emmylou Dalaza, Asian Pacific Rim Foundation President
and interim Chair, Pacific Rim Street Fest Planning Committee
