First AAPI Fall Expo Celebrates Asian Heritage
On Friday, November 4, 2022, the AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) Faculty and Staff Association and Asian Pacific Student Union collaborated to bring the first AAPI Fall Expo to UofL. The Expo was held in the Red Barn and featured several AAPI-owned food vendors, non-profits and performances. Local restaurants, including Dalat’s Gateaux and Cafe, TropicGrillz, and Kitchen and Bar came out to give food and performances were given by the River Lotus Lion Dance group and the Asia Institute Crane House.
The EXPO helped AAPI-owned business and organizations gain exposure both within the UofL AAPI community and the larger Louisville community, all while helping to raise funds for AAPI programming at UofL.
