Chinese New Year Celebration
Join us as we welcome the Year of the Earth Dog with a Chinese New Year Celebration! Adults and children alike will enjoy treats, tales, and traditional crafts as part of one of the biggest cultural celebrations in the world.  

Families with children can participate in:
- Storytelling: Listen to the legend of Nien, hear about the Chinese zodiac, learn the many ways we celebrate the 15 days of the Lunar New Year, and discover the traits of 2017's Fire Rooster and 2018's Earth Dog.

- Crafts: Kids can make a lion's head to ward off evil spirits, create a hong bao envelope to give and receive special treats, and practice writing chun lian and fu dao with Chinese characters.

- Parade: Families can join the parade to the NY Chinese Scholar's Garden and hear cymbals, drums, and pop-it firecrackers scare off evil spirits.

- Food: Enjoy traditional foods like dumplings, spring rolls, niangao, and chrysanthemum tea.  The pronunciation of niangao sounds like 'year high'(), which symbolizes a higher income, a higher position, the growth of children, and generally the promise of a better year. It is considered good luck to eat it during the Chinese New Year period.

Adults without kids can also participate in this immersive cultural celebration. With Ben Ng, our educator in Chinese calligraphy, you'll enjoy more grown-up artistic activities like ink wash painting, chun lian writing, and shan shui (mountain painting), plus tours of the NY Chinese Scholar's Garden and warm refreshments.

Special thanks to the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, the Friends of the NY Chinese Scholars Garden, andKevin Chau,Certified Financial Planner™.

Wear red and gold when you come to Snug Harbor to celebrate Chinese New Year with us! Well see you soon. Gung hay fat choy!
