VACAT'S 2021 Events 

Tet Trung Thu / Mid-Autumn Festival

 After canceling all of our cultural events last year due to COVID-19, we were so happy to have come back and celebrated with a socially distanced outdoor event. This was opened to everyone in the greater Austin area to come celebrate and learn about Vietnamese culture. We celebrated Tet Trung Thu with live music and performances, vendors, fundraisers, and free balloons, light up lanterns and glowsticks. We appreciate everyone for coming out and staying masked.

Each package included socks, undergarments, gloves, hats, menstrual products, deodorant and lots of love. We packaged them at the VACAT office and were able to connect and hand these out to the community.
