If you enjoy eating tons of Vietnamese street food with family and friends, you may want to clear your weekend for the annual Vietnamese New Year Festival put on by St. Philip Phan Van Minh Catholic Church. With some cash in hand, you can try a variety of ethnic foods at this celebration, including spring rolls, beef noodles, sugarcane juice and pork meatballs. If your knowledge of the cuisine doesn’t extend much farther than pho (for shame, Orlandoan!), meet at the front gate at 10:30 a.m. Saturday with a group organized by local food blog Tasty Chomps to get a guided tour of the delicious world of Vietnamese street food.

10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday | Central Florida Fairgrounds, 4603 W. Colonial Drive | | free
