The annual attraction showcases the diversity of Asian culture and heritage through a variety of performances and delectable dishes. The carnival is part of the larger AsialiciousTO celebration, which was inspired by other beloved foodie events, such as Summerlicious.

You can look forward to sampling hundreds of bargain-priced foods and drinks from a variety of different countries over the course of the festival.
