  • Hmong Culture Celebration

    May 2 | 2:00-4:00 pm

    This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Hmong migration to the United States, following the Vietnam War. The first Hmong families who came to Appleton were refugees who arrived with very little or nothing; including a homeland. Today, Appleton is home to just over 3,100 Hmong.

    Over the years the Hmong have progressed to becoming business owners, politicians, lawyers, doctors and teachers, among other professions.

    To commemorate this special anniversary, we are celebrating Hmong culture and history during a special event Saturday, May 2 beginning at 2:00 pm. Our goal is to promote knowledge of the Hmong community’s culture, history and arts to people of all backgrounds. This event will include activities and entertainment related to the Hmong culture.
