Little Saigon is the social, economic, and cultural hub of the Vietnamese community in the Puget Sound region. In the 30+ years since the first group of Vietnamese businesses took root in this area, Little Saigon has become a vibrant and vital part of the Vietnamese community, as well as the Chinatown International District. FLS wants to embrace this identity and rich history through arts activation.
