About Asialicious Carnival

Since 2019, Asialicious Carnival’s initiative has always been to promote Asian culture through food and performance.

Our goal for running this event is to present the beauty and charisma of Asian culture through food and fun filled activities, allowing different ethnic groups to understand and work together in a harmonious environment. Through this carnival, we have also created great volunteer opportunities for youth and new immigrants to participate in the community.

Past Events


The three day weekend Asialicious Carnival, started in 2019, has become an annual attraction celebrating multiculturalism in a fun-filled and entertaining fashion at Woodside Square in the heart of Scarborough. Showcasing diverse Asian culture and heritage through a variety of performances and ethnic foods. 

Over the past five years, the Asialicious Carnival has evolved significantly from a local community event with a focus on food and entertainment to a nationally recognized celebration. Drawing visitors from coast to coast, spanning provinces and municipalities, the carnival has become a destination for those seeking to experience a unique, themed cultural showcase.

In 2023, the Asialicious Carnival introduced its inaugural themed component, “Savouring Japan.” This innovative addition includes a special street dedicated to Japan’s traditional culture, featuring a diverse array of culinary delights, arts and crafts activities, a captivating cosplay parade, anime performances, and a showcase of “Itasha” cars. This themed component not only enhances the overall event experience but also serves to foster stronger solidarity and a sense of belonging within our community.
