Did you know that the beginning of February is when another part of the world celebrates their New Year? It is called “Lunar New Year”. In Vietnam, we call this special occasion “Tết Nguyên Đán” or “Tết ”.
Em’s Kitchen and the City of Tampere are proud to bring around Tết’s atmosphere and introduce a taste of Vietnam to you. This cultural event will be a joyful celebration featuring Vietnamese cuisine, live performance, quizzes, traditional festive games, fashion show, magic show, and other surprises to celebrate Tết. Tết is the biggest and most important festival in Vietnamese culture, taking place every year to embrace family reunion, when life concerns are left behind after a whole hard-working year. The idea of Tết is very much the same as Christmas holiday in Western countries, in which family members gather around family meals, enjoy precious time together in a cozy, relaxing atmosphere.
Vietnamese cultural event – Tết 2019 is brought to you by the dedication of many Vietnamese students and expatriates in Finland.
