Tết Nguyên Đán returns to Wanneroo Showgrounds this Friday and Saturday. Highlights include authentic Vietnamese food, cultural performances, carnival rides and live music as well as a spectacular fireworks display to usher in the Year of Rat.
Hosted by the WA Chapter of Vietnamese Community in Australia, the Tết celebration is one of WA's most exciting carnivals and is increasingly drawing festival-goers from the wider community.
This year's Tết celebration is being supported by McGowan Government with $20,000 through the Office of Multicultural Interests, $17,428 through Lotterywest and $15,000 through Healthway.
Citizenship and Multicultural Interests Minister, Mr Paul Papalia, acknowledged the contributions made by the 21,000-strong Vietnamese community to the social, economic and cultural development of this State.
"Tết is a time of joy and for families and friends to come together to enjoy special food and share best wishes for the year ahead. Tết celebrations in Perth are an opportunity for everyone to experience the vibrant Vietnamese culture that is such an important part of our community."
Minister Papalia wishes everyone good fortune for Year of the Rat, and Chúc mừng năm mới!
