Asian Cultural Center of Vermont celebrates the Lunar New Year of China, Korea and Vietnam on Sunday, January 22nd from 1-3pm. All ages welcome!
You don’t have to be Asian or know anything about Asia to participate! Join us at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center to usher in the year of the Black-Water-Rabbit. The sign of Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture and promises a period of rest and reflection after the dynamic Year of the Tiger.
We will start our celebration with a potluck. Then join us for traditional Chinese Dance with Li Fei Osborne, group Taiji and Qigong with Cai Xi, the Korean rope-tug and traditional New Year songs and crafts. Make your own New Year banner! We end our celebration with a Dragon parade up from the Museum towards Main Street to bring us luck for the coming year.
Don’t miss the chance to dance with the 30-foot dragon. This extraordinary dragon was created by an accomplished Vietnamese craftsman. According to Chinese folklore, this enormous marionette, requiring at least 9 people to hold, is forever chasing the ‘heavenly pearl’ in its pursuit of wisdom.
