CCD Activities 2014

  • Cultural Festival: Thank you for coming to our festival in 2013. We hope that you enjoyed and learned something about our culture.  We have decided to change the venue this year after 12 years in Alexandria VA. It is costly-prohibited to celebrate there. So we look for a cost-effective alternative. For this reason we decide to celebrate our annual culture festival at Buddhist temple in Silver Spring MD. The address is 13800 New Hampshire Avenue Silver Spring, MD 20904. Date will be posted later. The festival date is set to be on September 7th 2014 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM.
  • Khmer New Year: We are in the process of organizing a children clohing show and excerpts of Lakhon Bassac show, a traditional type of Khmer entertainment. The shows will be performed on Saturday April 12, 2014 12:30 PM at Buddhist temple 13800 New Hampshire Avenue Silver Spring, MD 20904. Souvenir book is currently in progress.

Enjoy the rehearsal picture below.


Here are the Lakhon Bassac songs that we will be using on April 12:

Thvay Krou, a performance prelude praying to our ancestors to bless us and help us perfect our performances.
