Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do is sponsoring the annual OC Tet Festival at Mile Square Park on January 24, 25, and 26.



The OC Tet Festival marks the beginning of the new year and is the most important celebration in the Vietnamese-American community. This Lunar New Year marks a time of renewal, rejuvenation, and a time to remember our loved ones and our ancestors.

“Little Saigon in Orange County has become a destination for thousands of visitors from around the world who come each year to celebrate the Lunar New Year,” said Supervisor Andrew Do. “The OC Tet Festival is a wonderful cultural and entertainment event for families to celebrate new beginnings together.”

Each Lunar New Year is associated with one of twelve Zodiac animals, which are commonly associated with certain personality traits. 2020 is the year of the rat. The rat is associated with prosperity, optimism, and good luck.

“At the Tet Festival, visitors will have an opportunity to experience the Vietnamese Cultural Center, where they will be transported to some of the most iconic landscapes from different regions of Vietnam,” said Supervisor Do. “Everyone is welcomed to attend this free event.”

This FREE event will feature:

• Live entertainment
• Captivating lion dances
• Exciting carnival rides
• Games for visitors of all ages
• Excellent beer and wine selection
• An exciting firecracker lighting ceremony
• Authentic Vietnamese cultural performances
• A bountiful variety of Vietnamese food
