May is Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month! In Pierce County, we celebrate our diverse community. Here are some various celebrations and events taking place in Pierce County this month.
Located in Tacoma, the Asia Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) serves as a crossroad between our Pierce County and international communities. APCC celebrates AANHPI month with a variety of events such as Korea Day, Pioneer Crafts and Music Fest, several cultural presentations, group performances, plus the Taste of Asia and Artwork Demo. Find more information about these events on their website.

Take a stroll through Tacoma Chinese Reconciliation Park. Designed around the backdrop of a Chinese garden and intended as a place of healing and harmony, the park allows visitors to walk through a Chinese garden and enjoy the views of Commencement Bay. Can’t make it in person? Take a virtual visit.
The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum pay tribute to the generations of Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched America's history.
