16th New Year Chinese New Year Firecracker Ceremony & Cultural Festival in Chinatown, NYC

February 19, 2015 at 11am.

It is tradition to begin the Lunar New Year by setting off firecrackers at midnight. And, since Chinatown in NYC inhabits approximately 100,000 people and is one of the largest enclaves outside of Asia, you know they are pretty serious about traditions! However, it is illegal to light firecrackers in NYC! So, there is a formal ceremony that is approved for the setting off of rockets and firecrackers along with lion dances, drumming, dancing and a parade through the streets.

Portland Chinese New Year with Lan Su

Thursday, February 19, 2015

Lan Su Chinese Garden is one of Portland's greatest treasures. Built by Chinese artisans from our sister city Suzhou (home of China's famous ancient gardens), it's among the most authentic Chinese gardens outside of China. Much more than just a beautiful garden, Lan Su is a creative wonder -- a powerfully inspiring experience based on a 2,000-year-old Chinese tradition that melds art, architecture, design and nature in perfect harmony.

Lan Su is a rare treasure that offers an extraordinary glimpse into Chinese culture. Visitors of all ages can explore the garden, its history and meanings through a wide variety of fun and enriching activities, including: guided and self-guided tours, mahjong, tai chi, calligraphy, musical performances, art shows, tea tastings, and an ongoing lecture series featuring everything from Chinese medicine and acupuncture to healthy cooking and eating.

Chinese New Year 2015—Year of the Ram celebrations begin February 19! Start your preparations for Chinese New Year by cleaning your house, gathering with family and planning your visit to Lan Su! Chinese New Year is the most colorful and joyous of all Chinese festivals and Lan Su celebrates with two weeks of festivities and four evenings of Lantern Viewing.

Each guest visiting on February 19 will also receive a hong bao—a traditional lucky red envelope.

15th Annual Lunar New Year Celebration

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF TIME TO 6:00PM    Ring in the Year of the Sheep at IHP! Featuring dance performances from the Chinese community in Philadelphia, a sampling of traditional Chinese food, and at the end of the evening, and a time-honored lion dance to welcome the coming year once and for all. Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year, is a centuries old, important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated all around the world. Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the Chinese New Year vary widely. Often, the evening preceding New Year’s Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather together to their annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red paper cut-outs with popular themes of good-fortune or happiness, wealth, and longevity. Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes. Chinese tradition states that the Year of the Horse is optimistic, with a belief that good fortune will soon be on the way with plenty of supportive friends, so please join together and celebrate with your friends at International House!
