Background Information: Eden Center is a Vietnamese cultural and commercial center located near the crossroads of Seven Corners in Falls Church, VA. The City's Economic Development commission considers it the #1 Tourist Destination in the City. Eden Center is home to over 100 shops, restaurants and businesses catering to the extensive Asian American, especially the Vietnamese-American, population. The Center serves as an anchor for Vietnamese culture serving the Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, and Pennsylvania areas. Many Vietnamese-American cultural events are regularly held at the Center including the Mid-Autumn Festival, TET - the Lunar New Year Celebration, and Black April - which commemorates April 30th, 1975 when South Vietnam fell under communism. In recent years as more people discovered the values of shopping and dining there, Eden Center attracts a more diverse clientele. On weekends and holidays, many people come to taste and enjoy the many eateries including the large number of phở soup restaurants, bánh mì delicatessens, bakeries, markets, as well as. The name derives from the 1960s Saigon arcade Khu Eden.[2] Eden Center is the largest Vietnamese commercial center on the East Coast, and the largest Asian-themed mall on the east coast of North America.
