Croatia Fest
Seattle, WA

CroatiaFest 2022 is thrilled to announce our return to an in-person festival on Sunday, October 2nd from noon – 6:00 PM at the Seattle Center Armory. Our wonderful team volunteers and committee members are working overtime to bring back to you a celebration of our heritage and culture with the sights, sounds and foods that are the core of our community. Unfortunately, we will not be producing the annual Saturday night Mass and dance/sing-along this year. We aim to bring these two great events back next year. Please visit the CroatiaFest website www.croatiafest.org for schedule updates as plans are finalized.

Seattle Center Festál presents Hmong New Year Celebration in partnership with Hmong Association of Washington (HAW). The festival celebrates the end of the harvest season with intricate clothing, dance, food, and more.

HISTORY

The Hmong people are an ethnic group who have maintained their own language, customs and ways of life, while adopting the ways of the country they live in, since the Hmong do not have a country of their own. The Hmong New Year Celebration was created to give thanks to ancestors and welcome a new beginning. This is the biggest festive holiday celebrated where Hmong communities exist. Traditionally, this celebration lasts for ten days, but has been shortened in the U.S. Everyone dresses in traditional Hmong clothing and enjoy traditional food, dance and music. One very popular part of the Hmong New Year is, ‘Pov Pob’ tossing ball between two people, a form of courtship.
