2023 Qeej and Hmong Arts Festival JUNE 4
Attend an authentic celebration of Hmong culture at the Qeej and Hmong Arts Festival, taking place on June 4, 2023 at the historic Landmark Center in St. Paul. Building on the first ever festival last year, this unique and lively event will showcase the rich traditions and creative expressions of the Hmong people through live traditional music and arts performances, as well as delicious food and drinks.
The festival will feature a diverse lineup of talented Hmong musicians, playing traditional Hmong instruments such as the qeej, a type of bamboo pipe, and various types of raj, which are reed instruments. Expect to hear soulful ballads, upbeat dance tunes, and lively folk songs, all infused with the unique sounds and rhythms of the Hmong culture.
In addition to the live performances, there will be a vibrant arts market featuring Hmong-made crafts, textiles, and other handmade goods, as well as opportunities to learn more about Hmong history and culture through interactive exhibits.
And of course, no festival would be complete without delicious food! Sample some of the best Hmong and Southeast Asian cuisine, including savory meat and vegetable dishes, spicy soups, and sweet desserts, all prepared by local chefs and vendors.
The event is organized by the Hmong Cultural Center.
