Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) make up 12% of the population of Oregon’s Tualatin Valley, and the many cultures, traditions and cuisines from this part of the world has made a huge impact on the culture of Tualatin Valley. That impact is reflected in the restaurants, shops and community and arts organizations we embrace here.

In 2018, Washington County proclaimed May as Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month to celebrate the many people of Asian and Pacific Island descent. The month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of those who have immigrated to the United States or whose ancestors originated from the continent of Asia and the numerous Pacific Islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia.
