Arts preview: Popular Asian Festival returns for 19th year

Jesse Tigges, Columbus Alive

Since 1995, the Asian Festival has offered an abundance of activities and experiences to visitors, becoming one of the most popular cultural festivals in Columbus.

The two-day fest will have arts, crafts, jewelry and clothing in the marketplace and classical and contemporary performances (dance, music, martial arts, etc.).

If that weren't enough, there's also a handful of Asian sports - make sure to watch some fast-paced Ping-Pong and Sepak-Takraw - or a smorgasbord of foods to savor.
