Annual Heritage Days

10th Annual Heritage Days

May 3 - May 29, 2024

Heritage Days marks its 10th year! The annual series of events celebrates the rich history, exciting progress and promising future of the West Bottoms, one of the Region's oldest neighborhoods and commercial districts. Events begin on May 3rd and continue through May 29th.

A variety of events will be featured commemorating the history, culture, and people of the bi-state area which is seeing extensive redevelopment. This includes returning events from previous years -- including the Taste of Asian American Pacific Islands Festival, Strawberry Swing, and the Wettest Block Pig Roast -- as well as new events such as the West Bottoms Bikes Ride and Cycling Swap.
