Chinese American Association of Minnesota

Who we are:

Chinese American Association of Minnesota (CAAM) is the oldest and largest Chinese American community organization in Minnesota. Tracing its history to the Chinese American Club gatherings at Nankin Cafe dating back to the 1930s, CAAM was founded by Nankin Cafe’s owner in 1951 and incorporated with his help in 1967.

CAAM is non-profit and non-partisan with the mission to provide cultural, educational, recreational, and other programs to promote the cultural heritage and enhance the quality of life of Chinese Americans in Minnesota. This mission is being carried out through CAAM’s community service programs and by its CAAM/Twin Cities Chinese Language School and its CAAM Chinese Dance Theater.

CAAM Chinese Dance Theater celebrates its 25th Anniversary January 27-28, 2018! Join us for our latest world premiere, “Our Dance, Our Dreams (追梦-圆梦)”.  Tickets on Sale October 1.
