Trace a Culture from Past to Present at Hmong New Year Celebration

Join the Seattle Center Festál: Hmong New Year Celebration, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 5, in Seattle Center Armory. This family festivity preserves the ancient highland cultures of China, Laos and Thailand as it brings together Hmong people from across the region.

The festival celebrates 19 years at Seattle Center under the theme "Past to Present," showcasing Hmong artists in ways that illuminate the history and current trends of this distinct culture. Popular Hmong-Canadian rock band SuddenRush headlines the festival, returning to the U.S. for the first time in five years (suddenrush.net/media). Along with traditional dance and music performances running throughout the day on the Armory Stage, festival-goers may join the fun in a Hmong line dancing class.
