The Lao Lahanam Association invites you to sponsor the inaugural “2019 Songkran Southeast Asia New Year Festival”. This exciting event will be held on Saturday, April 20 at the Holland Civic Center, Downtown Holland, Michigan from 4pm 11pm. It is a fundraiser event that will include cultural performances, featuring Muay Thai, authentic street food from Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, Lion Dancers, Taiko Drummers, and live music.

Songkran also known as the “Water Festival” celebrated across the globe in welcoming a New Year for many that are originally from Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. With the growing Southeast Asian population in our area, one of the key missions of the organization is to help bring unity, awareness, support new immigrants, and be culturally welcoming to West Michigan. We want to tie this back to the Unity Bridge that was launched in 2015 about Celebrating our Diversity, Building Our Community Together.

We appreciate your support and consideration to be part of our inaugural Songkran New Year Festival. We are expecting a sold-out show of 500 people. Great opportunity to help Build our Community Together.
