Tet Festival is held each February in conjunction with the Tet & Chinese New Year. It is the most observed holiday in the Vietnamese community and is usually hosted by the Vietnamese Student Union Association, in conjunction with a Tet Festival Committee.
The Union of the Vietnamese Student Associations of Southern California (UVSA) has been the host of the Tet Festival for over 30 years and, with the spirit and hard work of students and volunteers, help bring the festival to life with a vibrant array of traditional foods, live entertainment, festive games and customs celebrating the Vietnamese Lunar New Year.
Garden Grove and Westminster include Korean and other Pacific Rim communities,
as well. The region is a mecca for shopping, with imports of foods, products and
clothing familiar to specific Asian cultures. While the event was held in the
Vietnamese community for decades, it has moved to a new venue for greater ease
of access and parking.
Pageantry blends with centuries of tradition to showcase the finest customs and costumes. Miss Vietnam of Southern California contest is one of the most spectacular events in which talented and beautiful, young Asian women compete for the title through contest categories displaying poise, beauty, grace and talent.
The American-Asian youth culture embraces American lifestyle but also hosts
this cultural event to share, showcase and celebrate the rich history and proud
heritage of the Southern California Asian community. The festival is attended by
all age groups, and all nationalities. Games, contests, vendor booths with
food, unique gifts, and traditional ceremonies all provide fun and entertainment
for an affordable weekend.
