Tickets are $75 and includes Southeast Asian street food staples and a cash bar. Program includes an all-woman comic cabaret, community awards for a handful of local Southeast Asian legends, and live storytelling from our featured speakers.

The event is open to the general public and all are welcome. Doors open at 5:00 and program starts at 5:30. Attire is cultural wear, but please feel free to come as you are.
