Hmong Minnesota Day at Dan Patch Park

Now in its sixth year, Hmong Minnesota Day will feature a collaboration of Hmong artists and organizations from throughout Minnesota, including singers, dancers, martial artists, community leaders and more for all to enjoy. The day will conclude with big-name Hmong American artists on stage for a grand finale. Stage performers consist of traditional and contemporary performances.

The theme this year is about hope, healing and a celebration of life. The Asian American community has had to navigate the pandemic in unique ways, including the higher-than-usual loss of lives due to COVID-19, anti-Asian hate wave across the country, and having to balance cultural practices around COVID-19 compliances. As one Hmong grandmother stated, "As a Hmong people, we survived war, genocide, the refugee camps and resettlement to a brand-new country with nothing but the clothes on our backs; we will survive this pandemic, too." We will bounce back stronger and better, which is a message that all Minnesotans and Americans can relate to. This day will feature a tribute to honor the legacy of some Hmong Americans who lost their lives to COVID-19 and will spread hope and healing to all.

Partners include: Hmong American Partnership; Hmong Education and Resource Fair; Hmong MN Chamber of Commerce; Center for Hmong Arts and Talent; Community School of Excellence; Prairie Seeds Academy; Hmong College Prep Academy; New Millenium Academy;
