Celebrating Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month

The Woodland, 60 Woodland Road, Maplewood, NJ 07040

Saturday, June 1, 2019 12:00pm to 5:00pm


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.

Given the appetite for global cultures in our communities, HAPI Fest NJ is unique in its emphasis on multi-cultural aspects and will attract visitors far and wide, from central and northern New Jersey.


Insights from the SOMA Cross Cultural Works festivals: Diwali Fest NJ, Lunar Fest NJ and Hola Fest NJ:

  • Each festival was attended by over 2,000 people
  • Facebook posts reached over 70,000 people in North Jersey
