Marian Days

Marian Days is the main festival and pilgrimage for Vietnamese American Roman Catholics, celebrated since 1978 on the campus of the Congregation of Our Mother Co-Redemptrix in Carthage, Missouri.


Attendees are mostly drawn from the Vietnamese emigre community in the United States but also include many others from Canada, Vietnam and other nations all around the world. Carthage turns into a booming Vietnamese metropolis complete with authentic music, activities and official announcements delivered in native tongue. The celebration itself is like an extended summer picnic, camp out or family reunion, which offers an extensive variety of food kiosks, farmer’s market and many vendors of devotional and cultural items.
