This year, the event was organised outdoor for the first time at the Cuba Street in the centre of Wellington, with the theme “V-District: A Step to Vietnam”.
It featured performances of Vietnamese students in Wellington and children from Vietnamese language courses. Traditional dishes of Vietnam were also served at the event.
The cultural exchange event is held annually in Wellington by the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Wellington (VSAW), with support of the Embassy of Vietnam and the Vietnamese community in Wellington.
It aims to promote images of Vietnam’s people, culture and cuisine to local people and international students in New Zealand.
