Time: 1PM - 4PM

Come celebrate the Year of the Goat with performances by local artists and student organizations, interactive cultural booths, and traditional foods. 

Lunar New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar. Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the "Lunar New Year".  InChina, it is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. 

This event is free and open to all!
