The Tết Festival of Southern California is recognized as the world’s largest Tết Festival outside of Vietnam. Helping preserve culture, the festival boasts about the attraction of over 100,000+ audiences and dozens of booths in a span of a three day weekend event. Visitors are emersed with a vibrant array of traditional foods, live entertainment, festive games, and customs celebrating the new year.
Tết is the most observed holiday within Vietnamese culture. It celebrates the Lunar New Year, the beginning of Spring, and a way to start fresh.
The Union of Vietnamese Student Associations (UVSA) has been the host of the Tết Festival for more than 30 years. The spirit and hard-work from students and volunteers helps 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. 50% of the profit from the festival is given back to the community.
