📆 Saturday, August 26th • 3 pm – 9 pm
📍 Chinatown International District: 900 S King St
The CID Block Party is all about Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) music, arts, and culture, with a main stage under I-5. Free and all ages.
Everyone has a block party these days. But what they don’t have elsewhere is what’s unique to that locale. And with the CID Block Party, it’s the intersection of Chinatown, Japantown, Filipino Town, and Little Saigon. The celebration returns for its fourth year, bringing color to a dreary concrete backdrop, splashing it with underground music, food trucks, a beer garden, a car show, an art walk, and even a Pokemon competition. The urban landscape becomes a confluence of cultures.
The party starts at 3 pm and closes at 9 pm. The set times:
