CAMBODIA DAY

Experience the rich tapestry of Cambodian culture and arts at CAMBODIA DAY, a festival for the Khmer community to share the heritage and history of Cambodia with local and global audiences. Set against the backdrop of San Francisco's picturesque Union Square, this event, in collaboration with the Union Square Alliance, will be captured as part of a documentary titled “CAMBODIA DAY.”

 

Delve into the majestic history of the Khmer Empire, with a focus on traditional folklore such as the beloved tale of Hanuman (the monkey general) and Sovann Maccha (the mermaid). The festivities kick off with vibrant displays of Khmer cultural elements: traditional musical instruments, classical dance performances, and the awe-inspiring Bokator demonstration by Cambodian legend master Kenya Prach, and Dy Sao. 

 

Highlighting the event are musical performances by renowned Cambodian and Cambodian-American artists like San Pisith, Khmer Karen, Black Spider Band, Chan Makara, Bert Samrach, Ban Monyleak, Satiya, Meas Soksophear, Dengue Fever, Khemarak Sereymun and a special guest (to be announced). Through entertainment and cultural immersion, CAMBODIA DAY aims to bridge communities and foster a deeper understanding of Cambodia's rich history and heritage.
