Vietnamese New Year Festival is a unique celebration of Vietnamese New Year traditions in New Orleans, Louisiana. Held at the principal parish for the community, Mary Queen of Vietnam Church, thousands attend to ring in the New Year with firecrackers, fireworks, services and dragon dances. There's folk music, dancers and traditional games as traditional Vietnamese delicacies including banh mi, grilled meats and exotic fruit drinks are served alongside inspired classics such as Vietnamese po-boys.
RSVP is required to join us on the van. We have the option of eating dinner as a group before or after the festival. Students can also bring cash to spend at the festival.
