The cultural diversity in the Bay Area makes it one of the best places to live in the world. Cambodian-Americans are certainly significant pieces of that cultural tapestry. The preservation of the Cambodian culture is, therefore, vital. It is paramount not only to the collective community, but also to the Cambodian community, and the individual Cambodians themselves.

Year of the Ox - 2009 at San Jose Bay Area

KHMER NEW YEAR is one of the major celebrations in Cambodian culture. It is based on
the lunar calendar, and is celebrated in mid-April. In San Jose Bay Area, the same ceremonies and activities are planned for and participated in. Even thousands of miles away from the land they were born in, Cambodians continue to honor and preserve their cultural heritage by sharing it with their children and new friends.
