Our mission is to bridge communities and generations through art, culture, education and business.

Asia Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) serves as an interactive cultural crossroads between local and international communities.

APCC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization was formed in November 1996 from the vision of a small group of citizens representing three generations of Americans from Asian and Pacific Islanders heritage. APCC represents 47 countries and cultures, offering programs and services honoring their distinct artistry, business protocols, history and social practices.

Our 20th Annual New Year Celebration was an amazing success.  Thousands of people came to enjoy the days activities of cultural entertainment, food, demos, shopping and more.
