Set to follow China’s lunar New Year, the Institute of Texan Cultures celebrates the year of the Monkey with the 29th Annual Asian Festival. With dozens of organizations in the lineup, the kid-friendly fest includes two stages for entertainment, plus plenty of food and a station stocked with Asian beers and sake. Expect to be immersed in the cultures of the Indian subcontinent, the Southeast Asian Peninsula and the island nations of the Pacific. As festival director Jo Ann Andera puts it: “There’s no better way to understand a culture than to experience it for yourself.”
