Vietnamese Tet Festival of San Jose
As the celebration of the Vietnamese New Year, Tết gives people the chance to reflect on the year that was, honor ancestors living and dead, and celebrate the hope inherent in the rebirth of spring. The Vietnamese Tet Festival of San Jose brings the holiday to California's shores, inviting guests to broaden their cultural horizons or recapture some memories of home during two days of lively events.
You'll find the traditional firecrackers and lion dances here, along with an áo dài (traditional dress) contest and martial-arts exhibitions. There's also plenty to eat: the festival includes a bánh mì eating contest and a phở challenge, as well as vendors hawking other tasty Vietnamese treats. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Vietnamese Voluntary Foundation, a nonprofit that serves the area's Vietnamese community.
