"The annual Calgary Chinatown Street Festival is a treasured community event that is eagerly anticipated each year. From the tastes, talents and merchandise of local vendors to the sights and sounds of the days’ activities, this family-friendly festival is a vibrant event that fosters cross-cultural experiences and makes our community stronger.

I commend the Calgary Chinese Merchants Association for promoting the business and development of Calgary’s Chinese community through events such as the Calgary Chinatown Street Festival. Their work is yet another example of how non-profit organizations contribute to building strong Alberta communities."

Honourable Teresa Woo-Paw, MLA for Calgary-Northern Hills
