We cordially invite you to the 9th Annual Marco Polo Festival Ambassador Awards Dinner, taking place on the evening of Wednesday, October 18, 2017 from 6:30pm - 9:00pm at Joy Luck Palace Restaurant located at 98 Mott Street, NYC.

Since 2009, the Marco Polo Festival interprets the story of the encounter between the famed Venetian merchant-traveler, Marco Polo (1254-1294), as a parallel of the historic encounter and lived experiences of the Chinese & Italian immigrants on Mott and Mulberry Streets during America's most important period of immigrant history. Now in its ninth year, the multi-day Marco Polo Festival serves as the preeminent New York City occasion to celebrate the rich heritage of Asian American & Italian American history and culture.

This year's dinner festivities once again include the bestowing of the Marco Polo Ambassador Awards, where exceptional local leaders are honored in recognition of their outstanding contributions towards the promotion of harmony, goodwill, and cooperation to the two communities of Chinatown and Little Italy, and for the first time - a scholarship endowment for cultural exchange programs.

Thank you in advance for your support!
