The Tết Festival of Southern California is coming to Garden Grove this Friday, Feb. 4.  The Tet Festival of Southern California recognized as the world’s largest Tết Festival outside of Vietnam.

The Union of Vietnamese Student Associations (UVSA) hosts the official Tết Festival of Southern California each year. UVSA staff and members contribute thousands of hours organizing the festival as a means to strengthen cultural awareness among the youth, build future leaders for the community, and fund community programs and projects across the Southern California region. The Tết Festival of Southern California remains one of the largest Vietnamese Lunar New Year celebrations in the country. This year marks the 30th Anniversary for the Tet Festival and will undoubtedly be great.
