Tet in Seattle – Vietnamese Lunar New Year is part of the Seattle Center Festál series and produced in partnership with Tet in Seattle (TIS).

In 2022, Seattle Center Festál is celebrating 25 years of stories and traditions. The theme, "Where the World Gathers" links together the series of 24 free festivals presented throughout the year, each with a unique cultural focus, identity, and range of engaging activities.

This year is also Tết in Seattle's 25th Annual Festival! Tết in Seattle is a volunteer-based community organization that produces a two-day festival near the Lunar New Year. Since 1996, Tết in Seattle has celebrated the culture of Vietnamese and Vietnamese-Americans in the Pacific Northwest through art, food, music, and traditions.

The festival will take place February 12-13, 12pm - 6pm in the Armory and Fisher Pavilion. There will be special live performances along with hands-on activities for the kids, and family-oriented events for all to enjoy. The Health Fair will have free screenings and other services. The festival is also hosting a Beer Garden for 21+ for the first time.
