Tet in Seattle

Tet in Seattle Tết In Seattle (T-I-S.) organizes the annual Tết Festival, a free celebration event held at the Seattle Center as part of Seattle Center's Festal world cultural program.

The Tết Festival celebrates the cultural roots of Vietnamese-Americans through the celebration of Tết, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year, by presenting, promoting, and providing hands-on experience in the arts, musics, performances, and foods that are unique to Vietnam. Tết In Seattle is a 501c3 non-profit organization made up of volunteers in its entirely ranging from the members who make up the Executive and Organizing Committees to the operational teams and performers on the festival days. The organization exists only because of the efforts and contributions of numerous Vietnamese and Non-Vietnamese volunteers who are dedicated to promoting and preserving Vietnamese culture and work year round with the Vietnamese community organizations and groups to organize the two-day festival. Tết In Seattle was formed in 1996 by four Vietnamese organizations (VSA-UW, Helping Link, Hoi Vo Thuat Thieu Nien Tacoma, and Lien Doan Huong Dao Viet Hung) interested in celebrating and preserving traditional Vietnamese culture in Seattle. With this in mind, these groups wanted to organize an event that would unite the Vietnamese community and introduce its unique culture to the greater Seattle metropolitan. The Vietnamese observance of the Lunar New Year, Tết Nguyen Dan, or simply Tết, was the best means to accomplish this endeavor. Tết In Seattle was born and hosted its first Tết Festival in 1997 in collaboration with the Seattle Center's Festal program. By mid 1998, Tết In Seattle had grown to become an independent organization with an Organizing Committee that was composed of new volunteers and some members from the original 4 starting organizations acting as individuals rather than as representatives of any group. For the first several years, Tết in Seattle operated as a non-profit organization under the umbrella of the Ethnic Heritage Council (Seattle Center). In early 2002, Tết In Seattle was awarded its own 501c3 status. Besides throwing the biggest FREE Tết Festival in the Pacific Northwest and perhaps all of North America, T-I-S also contributes to community service projects and volunteers to help not just in the Vietnamese community but also the greater Seattle Metropolitan service programs.

Mission: The mission of Tết in Seattle is to preserve and promote the Vietnamese culture and heritage and to enrich the cultural diversity in the greater Seattle area.

Tết Nguyên Đán, or Tết for short, is a Vietnamese Lunar New Year holiday. It is considered the biggest holiday in Vietnamese culture. It is often celebrated on the first day of the first month in the Lunar Calendar. To prep for this holiday, families come together to cook special meals and clean the house. This holiday ranges from seven to nine days! Many customs are practiced and encouraged such as reuniting with loved ones, worshiping ancestors, exchanging lucky greetings, giving red envelopes to both children and elders, and going to the temple and church. This year Tết starts on Jan. 25! How do you plan on celebrating?

Hey Tet in, I did a health check in the festival and blood results were displayed nicely on a flyer. I would like to bring a similar event to my local neighborhood and I want to display the result in a same format. Is anyone happen to have the photo of that flyer shows BMI, cholesterol, diabetes etc .. ? I would appreciate the help in this community involvement. thank you

Chắc ngôn ngữ Việt Nam không đủ diễn tả nên Tet in Seattle luôn luôn phải viết bằng tiếng Anh để thông tin đến cộng đồng Việt Nam?
We love your festival. So sad we have to miss it this year. Our hearts and spirit will always be with you all in the New Year!
What are the dates for the 2018 Tet In Seattle Festival? Also, the tetinseattle website seems to be down. Thanks.
