A three-day culinary delight is bringing together some of Adelaide’s best Asian restaurants from October 4-6 2014. AirAsia ASIAFEST will become your boarding pass to immerse yourself amongst the vibrant Asian culture in Adelaide.
Nestled in Rymill Park, this visually indulgent open-air marketplace provides the pathway to take visitors on a cultural journey emulating the experience as though they were visiting each country itself.
With several mini Festivals within the one festival, AirAsia ASIAFEST will be shining the spotlight on China, Japan, Thailand, Korea and Vietnam.
“We want to educate Australians about the diversity of the Asian Culture and how different each of them can be,” says AirAsia ASIAFEST Event Manager – Adriana Michael.
Featuring a unique entertainment line-up including traditional drumming, dancing, food, art, massage and various martial arts, AirAsia ASIAFEST is also bringing the art of Japanese Sumo Wrestling direct from Japan with Japanese Sumo Mania – a first for Adelaide!
“It is extremely rare for these wrestlers to venture to a foreign country with their traditional art form, and we have the pleasure of hosting these prestigious athletes right here in Adelaide,” says Adriana Michael
“Visitors will be able to witness an Adelaide first Sumo Tournament taking place in the custom built Isuzu Arena held here in Rymill Park.”
The clever team behind the Royal Croquet Club and Little Miss Mexico are putting together a truly unique festival bar over the three days within The Melting Pot called ‘Miss Lee’s Laundry & Bar.’ Visitors will be taken into the back street alleyways of Hong Kong surrounded by a fusion of street style eateries and entertainment in an intricately decorated setting.
AirAsia ASIAFEST aims to continue to unveil South Australia as a vibrant city and a destination for unique food, culture and entertainment.
