EUGENE, Ore. -- Preparation is underway for the 34th annual Oregon Asian Celebration, which is taking place at the Lane Events Center this weekend.

Organizers said the event will feature entertainment on multiple stages, food and a marketplace of more than 60 vendors. They said there will be performances by the Chinese Lion Dancers and taiko drumming. The theme for 2019 is the Year of the Pig.

David Tam, the co-director of the festival, encourages everyone to come out for the festival.

"It's just a lot of fun with the food and very diverse," Tam said. "People call it the kaleidoscope of events because we have a lot of different events at this one area and a lot of multi-cultural and cultures in one room."

In the food court organizers said food vendors will be representing popular cuisine of Korea, Japan, China, Vietnam, Philippines, India and Thailand.

They said there's also a plethora of activities for kids, including carnival games.

The event will be held Saturday, Feb. 16, through Sunday, Feb. 17. 

Admission is $6 for adults and free for kids 12 and under. It's $10 for a 2-day ticket. Students ages 13 and older can attend for free with a student admission ticket voucher available at any Oregon Community Credit Union branch when a student ID is presented.
