Meet Our Tet Planning Committee:

Vietnamese-American Community of Austin Texas (VACAT) is pleased and proud to invite you to our 18th Annual Vietnamese New Year (Tet) Celebration Event for the year of 2017.

Tet is the most important celebration in the Vietnamese culture. It is an occasion for families and friends to reunite, to cherish the good memory of the past year, to share love and respect for each other, and to wish each other a great year ahead.

This year’s Tet Festival of Austin will be held at the premier Leudecke Arena in the Travis County Exposition Center. With this new venue, we expect to have well over 5,000 visitors from all over Austin as well as the greater surrounding areas. It allows us to have more space for more vendors, making it more convenient for everyone.

This year's theme will be “The Fire of Youth”. In an effort to bring the younger members of the community together, to preserve and pass our traditions from one generation to the next, we are trying to bring in more young faces from the Vietnamese American and all other cultures to the celebration.

For almost 20 years, VACAT has been a strong and influential voice for the Vietnamese American community in Austin, Texas. With the collaboration of other interest groups, we have provided resources and brought joy to many of our members in the community at large. We need and ask for your generous support contributing to the success of our 2017 Tet Festival.
