The Lunar New Year Celebration welcomes the return of spring and chases out evil spirits with the traditional roaring lion dance and the crackle of firecrackers. Revisit one thousand years of the Vietnamese history at this festive New Year celebration.
2016 is "Year of the Monkey."

For the past 17 years, Tết Festival has celebrated the traditions of Vietnamese and Vietnamese-Americans by presenting and promoting arts, music, performances and foods that are unique to Vietnam.
