Tet Festival 2015

The UVSA Tet Festival is set for Feb 20, 2015 – Feb 22, 2015 at the OC Fair & Event Center, located at Los Alamitos Building & Lot I (Enter at Gate 8 off Arlington Drive. Sat & Sun: Additional Entry at Gate 3 off Fairview Rd.), in Costa Mesa.

Each year, those of Vietnamese descent celebrate the coming lunar year with Tet Nguyen Dan, their most celebrated and significant holiday. It celebrates the Lunar New Year, the beginning of Spring, and a way to start fresh.

The UVSA Tet Festival is the largest Tet Festival in the entire world. The festival attracts over 100,000 guests annually and caters hundreds of booths in a span of a three-day weekend event. Visitors are immersed in a vibrant array of traditional foods, live entertainment, cultural displays, festive games, and spectacular firecrackers show celebrating the new year. Located in the heart of Orange County and a short drive from Los Angeles or San Diego, the Tet Festival is the best way to spend the Vietnamese New Year holiday weekend in SoCal.

The Union of the Vietnamese Student Associations of Southern California (UVSA) has been the host of the Tet Festival for over 30 years, with the spirit and hard work of students and volunteers to help bring the festival to life. Granted the exclusive right to host the festival in 2002, UVSA contributes thousands of volunteer hours to help youth build strong leadership skills, cultural awareness, and experiences. UVSA is also a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-partisan, community-based organization that was founded in 1982. Over the past years, over $1,000,000 in festival proceeds have been awarded to non-profit organizations in the community.
