Celebrate Little Saigon
Little Saigon is the social, economic, and cultural hub of the Vietnamese community in the Puget Sound region. In the 40+ years since the first group of Vietnamese businesses took root in this area, Little Saigon has become a vibrant and vital part of the Vietnamese community as well as the Chinatown-International District.
Due to the lack of public gathering spaces in the neighborhood, community members were itching for opportunities to socialize and celebrate the rich Little Saigon culture. Hence, the creation of Celebrate Little Saigon, an outdoor food event that celebrates Vietnamese cuisine and culture happening in late July/early August. This event was created to highlight and support the local businesses, bring together Vietnamese artists and performers, and carve out space for community gathering.
