Second Annual Asian American and Pacific Islander+ Festival at the Zoo

In celebration of Asian and Pacific American Heritage Month, Denver Zoo is proud to partner with the Filipino-American Community of Colorado to host our second annual Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI+) Festival here at the Zoo! We hope you’ll join us for a day of multicultural dance, music, art, and informative workshops. Together, we will celebrate the diversity of Colorado’s Asian community and the Zoo’s unique connection to Asian cultures and countries through our animals and conservation programs. We encourage you to wear traditional clothing and accessories from the culture with which you identify.
