President Message (Con't)

 

Cambodian Cultural Festival is a festival to present, preserve and promote Cambodian culture, and to strengthen Khmer voice in America.  It is fun, exciting and educational. Each year several thousand Cambodians, Cambodian-Americans, Americans, and other ethnic groups come and join us and have fun. This year, we even plan a bigger event. The festival main features are showcases of Cambodian traditional music, Classical/Folklore Dances, Young Children Clothing show by era from Angkor period to present time, a complete story of Yee Ke Mak Theung, puppet show, Khmer Pottery, and many more. There are cultural exhibitions that may give you an insight look into Cambodian society in the past, present and future. For more information call me at 571-276-9630.
