For over 25 years, AVA has been organizing the Lunar New Year Tet Festival in Maryland to maintain and preserve Vietnamese customs and traditions, with quality entertainment program. This is the biggest annual event in the Vietnamese community in Maryland, with more than 2,000 attendees each year for the past 25 years. What’s a better way to start off the Lunar New Year than delicious Vietnamese specialty dishes, and traditional desserts and drinks? At the same time, sit back and enjoy the best Tet entertainment show in the Washington, D.C. area with the energetic Dragon Dance, the beautiful Miss Ao Dai Pageant, the adorable Children Pageant Contest (Thi Tre Em Dep) — and, for the first time ever, the “Áo Bà Ba” fashion show!

Admission: $3/Adults, $2/Children & Senior Citizens

With the goals of celebrating and preserving Vietnamese cultural and artistic heritage, as well as promoting unity and cultural diversity, the 2017 Maryland Lunar New Year (Tết) Festival turned out to be a huge success.  This accomplishment would not have been possible without the generosity of our sponsors, the incredible hard work of all volunteers, staff, and judges.
