The purpose of the festival is to expose the OC community to innovation and artistic excellence, so expect new songs and arrangements from a wide variety of celebrated local musicians. This series of shows will be both educational and a chance to rock out. All ages are welcome.
The Tet Festival will take place in Costa Mesa from February 8th through the 10th, and it’s sure to be one of the more fascinating things to do in Orange County this season.
The Festival is a celebration of Vietnamese culture, and more than 100,000 people are expected to attend this year.

If you don’t know too much about this vibrant culture, this is your chance to learn. It’s sure to be a joyful event with lots of smiles and laughter.
Timberwolf 5K Walk and Run
On February the 9th, a Saturday, it’s time for the annual Timberwolf 5K Walk and Run in Irvine. It also includes the 1K Fun Run. This is a gathering of fitness enthusiasts that takes place in a venue that is unparalleled in terms of natural beauty. Orange County residents come from all over to get some exercise followed by a feast of fantastic food.
Proceeds from the registration and sponsorships go to Northwood High School and the Families Forward initiative. It’s a nonprofit that supports housing programs, services for families in crisis, career coaching, counseling, and helps low-income families get regular meals.
This February you have a chance to take part in some things to do in Orange County that will teach you about new cultures and help support the community as well. Have fun, and don’t forget to stop by Toyota of Orange, the place for Orange County auto sales in 2019.
