Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do is hosting the annual Orange County Tet Festival at Mile Square Park, February 4 – 6th, to celebrate the 2022 Lunar New Year.
Tet, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year, is the most important celebration in the Vietnamese community. It is a time for families to gather and express their respect and remembrance for their ancestors. It’s also a time of renewal and rejuvenation to signify new beginnings.
“The OC Tet Festival is a wonderful event that celebrates new beginnings, good fortune, and prosperity,” said Supervisor Andrew Do. “Families can stop by Mile Square Park the first weekend in February to enjoy traditional Vietnamese food, music, and performances as they ring in the New Lunar Year.”
Each Lunar New Year is associated with one of twelve Zodiac animals, which are commonly associated with certain personality traits. 2022 is the year of the tiger. The tiger is associated with resilience, courage, and optimism.
At the OC 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 and enjoy the flavors of Vietnamese cuisine. Visitors will also enjoy live entertainment, carnival rides, and more!
