SUAB HMONG NEWS (05/23/2017) – For the second try, the Big Fresno Fair board of directors has selected Hmong Cultural New Year Celebration, Inc. to hold Hmong New Year festival at the Fresno Fairgrounds in December 2017.
Hmong Cultural New Year Celebration, Inc. bid $352,000.00 for the second time winning over Hmong International New Year Foundation.
Last month, the board awarded the contract for the massive event to Hmong Cultural New Year Celebration with a winning bid of $250,000. But that bid was rejected several weeks later after a protest was filed by the Hmong International New Year Foundation. The foundation has operated the festival at the fairgrounds for nearly 20 years.
