Children of the Dragon


Bring the whole family to this popular celebration of Vietnamese culture!

Children of the Dragon
Saturday, April 9
9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Join us as we honor some of the rich Vietnamese traditions at this joyful program. Revel in the spectacular Lion Dance – this dazzling tradition is a favorite among museum visitors and staff. We’re energized just thinking about this powerful dance! Enjoy performances by Lion Dance Troupe Yun Yee Tong and traditional dancers Tuổi Thần Tiên, make a dragon puppet, snap a commemorative family photo in a xich-lo, and stop by the theatre to watch a short video and learn more about Vietnamese customs while getting to know those of family, friends, and neighbors.

Performances at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
