Seattle Center is home to over 30+ attractions, museums, festivals, and arts organizations. The COVID-19 outbreak has made us look at how to provide entertainment in a different way.

Seattle Center has launched this portal for virtual events. We are excited to combine our professional staff, equipment and resources in offering this new platform to share arts and cultural programming.

Nyob Zoo Xyoo Tshiab – Happy New Year | November 6 @ 6:30PST

The Seattle Hmong New Year is an annual cultural festival that is held at the Seattle Center Armory. This year, due to COVID-19, the Hmong Association of Washington decided to host a virtual festival presentation instead. This virtual presentation is created and produced by the Hmong Association of Washington, and its volunteers and local Hmong artists from the Seattle Hmong American community.

The Hmong New Year is a traditional celebration that is held at the end of the harvest season. The celebration brings in everyone to gather, mingle with family and friends, eat together, watch performances, find love, and gain a new year blessing. In this virtual presentation, we would like to showcase a glimpse of what an in-person event would look like through a series of performances.
