AAPI Businesses in Pasadena

Support Asian-Owned Businesses

In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we encourage you to support the following AAPI-owned businesses in Pasadena.

Pasadena is a melting pot of diverse cultures and its business scene is no different. With hundreds unique backgrounds, there is plenty of diversity to discover and multiple ways to learn about the world. Understanding diversity is important because it bridges us with other cultures and allows us to become educated in various traditions, customs, practices, and beliefs. We hope all of our visitors can appreciate and acknowledge similarities and differences.

If you are an Asian-owned business in Pasadena and would like to be added to the list, please email marketing@visitpasadena.com.
