Southeast Asian Water Festival
The Southeast Asian Water Festival is dedicated to the preservation, protection and sharing of the cultural heritages of the Southeast Asian communities in Lowell, Massachusetts. In recent years, it has began to encompass other emerging Southeast Asian groups inside and outside of Lowell as well.

Every third Saturday in August, approximately 40,000-50,000 people from around the world travel to Lowell to celebrate water as it is celebrated in Southeast Asia. They come for the blessings, food, crafts, performances and most importantly, the competitive boat races.

In 1997, the first Lowell Southeast Asian Water Festival celebrated the culture of Lowell's many Cambodian citizens. In 2002, the festival began to encompass many other Southeast Asian communities as well. Representatives of Lowell?s Cambodian, Thai, Vietnamese and Laotian communities are now incorporated into the Lowell Southeast Asian Water Festival as a 501c3 tax exempt non-profit organization. In the past couple years, more Southeast Asian cultures have been included as well.
