The kickoff concert occurs annually at the start of the semester to mark the beginning of our fall events! Attendants come to hang out with their friends and bring blankets to sit on the grass as they eat free food provided by APASA as well as watch performers from the community. Performances range from music, dance, and spoken word.

One of our largest events of the year, APASA Night Market, serves to mimic the well known night markets of Taiwan and 626 Night Market. With an attendance of over 700 people from all backgrounds, Night Market is an exciting event of food, entertainment, and games! APASA assembly organizations run booths with various activities such as origami making, mahjong, gonggi, and many more where attendees can earn tickets to redeem prizes! Performances from Trojan Bhangra, Kazan Taiko, and other organizations keep the night fun and entertain the audience while representing various APA cultures.

The cultural art expo is an event where artists of all medium come to display their work. The artists themselves are showcasing their work and therefore can give a more in depth explanation of the meaning behind their pieces! There are also different interactive booths where attendees can produce art of their own!

 

Spring Events

Much of the spring semester is comprised of our month long event called the Asian Pacific American Heritage Festival (APAHF) where several events are hosted by APASA! Find out more about some of the many spring events of APAHF below!

Our speakers event is where we collaborate with other committees, typically USG and Speakers Committee, and invite an APA influencer to come speak at USC! In the past we have had Hasan Minhaj, Constance Wu, and Alan Yang come and share about their experience about being APA in media.

APASA's Got Talent showcases the diverse and amazing talent of the APA community at USC. Guest celebrity judges are brought to give tips to performers and choose a winner at the end of the show! Previous judges have been Dominic "Dtrix" Sandoval, Megan Lee, JamieBoy, and many others. Got Talent is an amazing event that allows APA students to take on the main stage and earn the recognition that they deserve.
