Myanmar Community and Cultural Center Committee (MCCCC) cordially invites you to the 6th Annual Bay Area Myanmar New Year Thingyan Water Festival on May 28, 2017 which will be held at Kennedy Park in Union City, California.


The Thingyan Water Festival is celebrated by all major ethnic and religious groups in Myanmar and marks the start of the Myanmar New Year which occurs in mid-April. Water is symbolic for washing away past sins to start the New Year physically and spiritually purified.


The Bay Area Thingyan promotes cultural diversity and is essential for strengthening community values in the San Francisco Bay Area through the development of intercultural awareness. Activities will include sprinkling of water, traditional culture thingyan dance, elderly homage ceremony, and water festival music entertainment as well as traditional food.
