West Coast Trungkar

We are extremely excited to announce that Northwest Tibetan Cultural Association (NWTCA) will host the 2019 West Coast Trungkar Celebration in Portland, Oregon from Thursday, July 4th thru Saturday, July 6th, 2019.

NWTCA is determined to make this year's Trungkar celebration, an event to remember for, and we wish to extend our invitation to each and every one in your community to the City of Roses. Please join us this summer for a grand celebration of His Holiness' birthday as we honor His Holiness lifelong commitment to our cause and his enormous contribution to the greater world. As was the focus since the inception of this annual West Coast event, we aim to make this year’s Trungkar celebration filled with fun, laughter, reunion and most importantly a celebration of our rich culture, traditions and values that we pass along to the next generation, and an affirmation of our strong bonds within our West Coast Tibetan communities.

Although we have our earnest intentions to make this a grand celebration, we will need your cooperation to make it a success. We request your active participation in all the events and activities and your very rigorous encouragement to your communities to participate in the programs and activities. Our preliminary list of event categories are as follows:
