4th Asian American Festival of the Town of North Hempstead

Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 12:00PM to 6:00 PM at North Hempstead Beach Park - W. Shore Road in Port Washington.

In 1997, the Chinese American Association of North Hempstead was formed by a group of Chinese American families. Since its inception, CAANH membership has grown to more than 200 families in the North Hempstead, Long Island area. CAANH is a non-profit and non-sectarian organization committed to promoting intercultural exchanges within our communities. The association’s objectives are:

  • To cultivate goodwill and introduce the Chinese culture and traditions to the community.

  • To promote community participation and awareness among our members.

  • To encourage quality education and sponsor scholarship programs for our children.

  • To represent the interests and concerns of Chinese residents in the community.

To achieve these objectives, the association organizes and sponsors many social, cultural, and educational activities that are open to our members and residents in the nearby communities. The association is also very active in volunteering and supporting school events held in the various school districts of our members. Through a lot of hard work, dedication and the support of our members, the association has made significant strides in promoting the image and interests of Chinese Americans.

In 2004, through the generous help of Senator Balboni, also an active member of CAANH, CANNH has secured a state grant for promoting our culture in the community. A large majority of our members resides in the Manhasset and Herricks school districts, but we are continuously expanding and looking forward to work with all Chinese families in the greater North Hempstead area.
