The annual two-day event typically draws about 40,000 people to Cleveland's Asia Town and they spend about $2 million at the event and in the area.

One voter's note summed up the responses: "Even though it's called the 'Cleveland Asian Festival' this spectacular two-day event is filled with so much culture and diversity; not just that of Asian descent, but the culture and diversity of Cleveland as well. As a growing city, festivals like these bring a city together, and it's always a great time!"
