The colorful event featured Hmong food, a traditional clothing show, music with second generation performances, and is a great way to experience the Hmong culture.

Hmong Elder, Cherpao Vang says, "one reason that we like to have this continually and have it in this community, we want to preserve our cultures, and we also want to share our culture to all non-hmong here. That since we're here we like to share our culture with our non-hmong friends here with this community."

This event is free and open to the public which also includes the traditional lunch that follows the program.
