VASA at UCF Presents: Tết Trung Thu – Mid-Autumn Moon Festival
Nov 5, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Tết Trung Thu, also known as the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, is a Vietnamese festival that celebrates the end of the harvest season. The festival allowed parents to reunite with their children to eat mooncakes, watch lion dances, and see colorful lanterns. Today, Tết Trung Thu continues to uphold the tradition of family togetherness as well as bringing happiness and joy to the kids through traditional customs.
The Vietnamese American Student Association at UCF is proud to present to you our annual Mid-Autumn Moon Festival also known as Tết Trung Thu. We’ll be having our event on Sunday, November 5th, 2017 in the Student Union at the Pegasus Ballroom. Doors will be opening at 5:30 and the show will begin at 6PM.
Forget about your worries and gain a little knowledge by coming out to experience the Vietnamese culture along with other talents at UCF. Come and enjoy this momentous occasion with free food, fun performances, dances, and skits! Everyone is invited to join, hope to see you all there!
The University of Central Florida’s Vietnamese American Student Association (VASA) was first established in December of 1982. Throughout these 31 years, VASA has served to help the Vietnamese community within UCF and the Orlando area. The organization was first established as a place for Vietnamese refugees attending UCF. It served as pillar of unity for refugees to feel welcome, safe, and loved in a new foreign land. As the years passed, VASA grew into an organization to promote Vietnamese cultural awareness as a newer generation of Vietnamese Americans emerged. Currently, the Vietnamese American Student Association’s main goals are to promote cultural awareness and promote Vietnamese culture within the UCF community. We strive to instill pride and a sense of culture within Vietnamese Americans today.
Our CPP (Collective Philanthropy Project): Pacific Links Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps fight against human trafficking by investing comprehensively in at-risk youths and their communities to prevent trafficking specifically in Vietnam, but spreading world-wide. Their primary goal is to encourage sustainable development in Vietnamese communities through community building and knowledge transfer between professionals in Vietnam and in the developed world. We will be having a booth in the back of the event if you are interested or want more information!
