The Tulsa City-County Library is celebrating Asian-American culture with it's annual festival.

This morning families enjoyed authentic cuisine, arts and crafts, performances, and martial arts demonstrations.

And organizers say they're adding new participants each year.

Mandy Durham, a festival chair member, told us "It's just exciting to be pulling in new representation from different Asian populations here in the city. I think a lot of people don't realize that Tulsa has one of the largest Burmese populations in the country. A lot of people have come here to settle from Burma."

The 17th annual festival was even bigger this year because of it's continued success.
