Adelaide Tet Festival 2020
1 & 2 Jan 2020

Celebrated in Vietnam and other parts of Asia, “Tết Nguyên Đán”, otherwise known as “Tết”, is a traditional Vietnamese festival that honours the dawning of the Lunar New Year. The Adelaide Tết Festival will be held at Bonython Park – Adelaide, on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 February 2020 and will seek to capture the happiness and spirit of the New Year by creating fun, happy memories, and celebrating Vietnamese culture and traditions.

The Adelaide Tết Festival is an annual event that enables Vietnamese South Australians to celebrate and share our traditional Lunar New Year custom that is rich in both cultural and spiritual values within the Vietnamese and broader Adelaide communities.
The Adelaide Tết Festival 2020 will involve a variety of activities that will bring together patrons from communities around our state of South Australia, interstate and overseas. The Festival will play host to many fun family activities, including sideshow games and rides, engage local businesses and food vendors to share their products and secret recipes, and facilitate a concert that will showcase multicultural performances from ethnic community groups, and traditional Vietnamese art and culture through song, dance and artistic expression.

This year we have upsized everything, including a larger, more centralised venue to accommodate more performances, more sideshow entertainment, more rides and amusements, and more deliciously authentic Vietnamese food options, for more patrons. This carefully considered approach is as a direct result of public consultation and our desire to share the most significant cultural celebration on our annual calendar with the South Australian public.
