Hidden Saigon Presents: Vietnam Now YYC Edition

Saturday, July 30th - Sunday, July 31st

An International Festival Showcasing the Other Side of Vietnam. A generation of Vietnamese are exploring a different cultural, musical, artistic space of this S-shaped nation.

This event will introduce people to VIETNAM NOW – a representation and reflection of a new generation questioning and redefining diaspora and Vietnamese-ness.

This unique one day event will go beyond bánh mì, phở, and conical hats to showcase the unique, exciting, creative things coming from both the Vietnamese and Vietnamese-Canadian communities.

Whether you want to pop in during the afternoon for a quick bite and drink or stick around longer to hear panel discussions and watch film screenings, or come later on in the evening to hear some great tunes and dance the night away, you don’t want to miss this!
