For the propitious Year of the Pig, the theme of the celebration is “the Culture and Tradition of the Chinese New Year Festival.” It will feature Chinese cuisine presentation and food sampling provided by the local Asian restaurants, bakeries and/or individuals; an art gallery showcasing artworks, calligraphy and Chinese painting; handcraft demonstrations such as paper cutting, origami and traditional costumes; martial arts demonstrations including Tai Chi and Lion Dance; as well as Chinese musical instruments performances. On top of all this, there will be a formal program of various performances by professional artists and local art groups, including but not limited to the Chinese acrobatics.
This year happens to mark the 30th anniversary of the Chinese New Year celebration event organized by the Westchester Association of Chinese Americans (WACA). WACA, as in previous years, will hold the upcoming 2019 celebration with generous support from local businesses and organizations.
So, please come and spend an afternoon with us to enjoy the festive atmosphere of the Chinese New Year, to learn about the rich history and culture of China, and to taste the delicacies that this culture has to offer.
