Join us in celebrating the Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month at HAPI Fest NJ 2019. A free, family-friendly community celebration, HAPI Fest NJ will feature food, music, dance, interactive children’s workshops and activities. 

SOMA Cross-Cultural Works, the non-profit organization behind the highly successful cultural festivals, Diwali Fest NJ, Lunar Fest NJ and Hola Fest NJ, is proud to partner once again with the Township of Maplewood and volunteers from South Orange and Maplewood, to create an exciting free multi-cultural event for our community. HAPI Fest NJ is at its heart about honoring the long, rich cultural traditions of Asia and the Pacific Islands and providing an opportunity for all to enjoy and celebrate together as friends and neighbors.

HAPI Fest NJ will be able to show the diversity of cultures, with performances such as:
Hula and Tahitian dances by Aloha Hula NYC
Shadow puppets by Chinese Theatre Works
Rondalla and ukulele musical ensembles from University of the Philippines Alumni & Friends Rondalla and the local In Tune of Maplewood
Martial arts including our local Maplewood Karate, and more.
