What is Tet and Lunar New Year


Usually the Vietnamese (Lunar) New Year, also called "Tet" is 1 - 2 months after the American New Year's Day. Therefore, the year of the new animal doesn't start exactly on Jan 1.  The Vietnamese New Year and Chinese New Year are always on the same dates of each other. They share the same calendar. 2021 will be the Year of the Ox! This year, Tet or Lunar New Years starts on February 12, 2021.

Lunar New Year only happens during the winter season. TetSanDiego.com lists Lunar New Year Festivals and Fairs taking place in San Diego and also posts any cultural festivals open to the public that is happening in San Diego throughout the year.
