Passport to Taiwan Festival

From its inception in 2002 until today, the annual Passport to Taiwan Festival has grown to become the largest outdoor Taiwanese American event in the U.S. This year, the New York City event was considered to be the largest Asian American festival held anywhere in the country.

Performances by Taiwanese Americans, as well as artists from Taiwan, included lion dances and acrobatic acts, such as the Formosa Circus Arts. Named after the island of Taiwan, the Formosa Circus Arts troup presents the story of Taiwan by bringing together traditional acrobatics, dance, drama, street culture, and theater arts in a contemporary circus experience.

The annual Passport to Taiwan Festival is supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the New York State Council, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
