2019 SF Bay Area Myanmar New Year Water Festival (Thingyan)

Sunday, May 26, 2019

Please join us for the Myanmar New Year Water Festival (Thingyan). There will be traditional dance performances, foods from various regions of Myanmar, a traditional ceremony of paying respect to community elders, cultural exhibitions, Thingyan dances, many fun activities and a designated area to play with water just like Myanmar. The Thingyan Water Festival is celebrated by all major ethnic and religious groups in Myanmar and it marks the start of the New Year. Water is symbolic for washing away bad luck and sins to start the New Year physically and spiritually purified. The funds from this event will benefit the Myanmar Community & Culture Center where we operate various events and programs. Free parking @ Union City BART Station. Walking distance from the BART Station. Check out our social pages for more info: Hashtag #SFThingyan2019
