ANiMA Fest is an outdoor arts celebration inspired by the Hungry Ghost, a holiday which honors ancestors that are believed to visit the living during this time. This multi-sensory arts festival represents artists from across the Asian Diaspora, featuring an exciting lineup of west coast artists, performers, musicians and a night market of interactive installations and experiences.
Join us for a magical night on the water, where we feed the spirit through a feast for the senses. Costumed performance artists, Asian bass DJ's and live bands join together amongst interactive altars, while spirits commemorate with the living on the beach at twilight. This is a festival of remixing and remaking, where we imagine modern traditions and animate ancient futures.
