Celebrate Asian Culture at Redlands’ Fruit & Spice Park

South Dade is home to farms and parks that grow exotic fruit and vegetables, cushioned by the Everglades to the west, Biscayne Bay to the east and the bustling city to the north. Situated in South Dade’s Redlands, Fruit & Spice Park is a 39-acre tropical fruit park growing more than 500 varieties of fruits, vegetables, spices, nuts and herbs. There’s also an onsite Mango Café where park-grown produce is the key ingredient of the menu. This is where Miami unfurls for a more relaxed pace with the big blue open sky above you.

Fruit & Spice Park has been a South Dade staple since 1944 and today it hosts weekly farmer’s markets, as well as many annual festivals including the 30th annual Asian Culture Festival from March 7-8, 2020. Expect a weekend of exotic music and dance, Asian arts, crafts, plants and entertainment, as well as a tasty selection of authentic Far Eastern cuisine.

Cultural performance highlights include Thai classical and folk dance, martial arts demonstrations, fashion shows, Fusho Daiko drumming and the Pars National Ballet of Vancouver performing the lost tradition of Iranian folklore dance. On display, you’ll also find Huong’s Peace Mural, which is 800-feet long and eight-feet tall with nearly 2,000 paintings representing a hope for world peace.

Other highlights of the Asian Cultural Festival include Japanese origami and Ikebana flower demonstrations, a Buddha Statue exhibition presented by Miami’s Wat Buddharangasi Monks, a Malaysian educational booth with traditional games and an Iranian pavilion with authentic Persian arts, including rugs, literature and instruments. Bring the whole family to the Global Kids Village for storytelling, puppet shows, games and song and dance from around the world.

Delight in delicious food from Bangladesh, China, India, Iran, Japan, Korea, Laos, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. You can also view artistic fruit and vegetable carvings at the Thailand tent. Think of the Asian Culture Festival as a weekend of virtual travel to Asia from the convenience of this beautifully landscaped South Dade park right in Miami’s own backyard.
