Message from the organizers: Tet Festival – Passport to Vietnam – Celebrating 40 Years of Vietnamese-American Accomplishments
Tet or Lunar New Year is the most important Vietnamese holiday to celebrate the good fortunes of the upcoming year by getting together with friends, families and the community
2015 marks the fourty-year anniversary since the first wave of Vietnamese migration to America. With that spirit, our Tet Festival’s theme “Passport to Vietnam – Celebrating 40 Years of Vietnamese-American Accomplishments” will bring families, younger generations and other communities together to experience the culture of Vietnam. The event will showcase Vietnamese-American talents, along with Vietnamese specialty dishes, activities, and attire from each of the 3 regions of Vietnam – North, Central, and South.
We encourage everyone to come out to support and learn about the Vietnamese community, culture, neighbors, and local businesses. Let’s ring in the new year of prosperity, good health, and luck with family, new friends, and neighbors.
Tet Festival will be on Feb 28 & March 1, 2015. 10am-10pm
