The Silk Road Festival is a social enterprise project that aims to enhance intercultural appreciation and community interaction, inspire travel and technological discoveries with ancient Silk Road aspirations.

On the ancient Silk Road, newcomers to the land interacted with locals fostering understanding, tolerance and respect for one other.

Social interaction of this nature is particularly pertinent in light of current world events.

Partial proceeds go towards supporting MOSAIC Programs.

The festival is produced by North America Asean Consultants Inc. in collaboration with MOSAIC.

This two-day outdoor multicultural festival features cultures and exchanges between East and West on the world’s famed historic trade routes through arts, food, travel and technology.

Highlights include cultural performances; food and beverage demonstrations and tastings; arts and crafts, travel, technology marketplace and exhibits from countries with affiliation to the Silk Road Routes.

A free event for the general public including families; lovers of arts, culture, travel and all things fun.
