Another year…

CHAT’s 9th Annual Hmong Arts and Music Festival

– A Hmong Us – was truly a success.  What a great day the Hmong Arts and Music Festival turned out to be. People keep telling us how different they felt after they walked in! It was a magical feeling, very welcoming and most of all – peaceful. We truly thank all the artists, vendors, planning team, volunteers, funders and festival-goers for making the day an awesome celebration of the contribution of Hmong American artists to the Twin Cities.

We also want to take a moment to recognize and thank HMONGKEE BUSINESS for their witty poster design that so many loved for this year’s theme: A Hmong Us.

Thanks to all those who came out, thanks to all the artists who participated and submitted, thanks to the planning team, thanks to the vendors, BIG thanks to all the volunteers, thanks to our funders and sponsors.

Center for Hmong Arts and Talent (CHAT) is a fiscal year 2010 recipient of a Festival Support grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is funded, in part, by the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
