In Vietnamese culture, the Lunar New Year is one of the most celebrated events on the calendar, if not the most celebrated, and it is coming to Bonython Park this February.
Tết Nguyên Đán, also known as Tết, is an annual Vietnamese holiday that welcomes the Lunar New Year and is a chance for people to reflect on what they have achieved in the past 365 days. Much like Christmas, this is a time during which millions of people find their way back to their childhood homes to spend time with family and friends.
Promising a bigger and better celebration than ever before, the annual event will be making its way to Bonython Park on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 February, offering an opportunity for the Vietnamese Australian community to share their customs and traditions with the people of Adelaide in a fun and interactive way.
In 2020, the festival will offer its guests an array of activities, including a selection of sideshow games and rides, a concert that will showcase multicultural performances from community groups and traditional Vietnamese art portrayed through song, dance and artistic expression.
Not to mention the abundance of local Vietnamese food vendors, showcasing the traditional recipes that will bring Vietnamese culture to life in the heart of South Australia!
The festival is upsizing from previous years, which means more of everything. More performances. More rides and amusement. More entertainment. More space. And of course, loads more delicious authentic Vietnamese food.
This upgrade to a larger, more central space caters for the popularity of the festival in previous years and the Vietnamese community’s desire to share their most significant cultural celebration with the South Australian public.
Bringing together people from around the state, interstate and overseas, the Adelaide Tết Festival will transform Bonython Park into a colourful mirage of flowers, exotic mascots and traditional costumes.
The Adelaide Tết Festival 2020 will be held at Bonython Park on Saturday 1 (11am-11pm) and Sunday 2 (11am-10pm) February. For more information, visit AdelaideTetFestival.com.au or facebook.com/AdelaideTetFestival!
