WACA Chinese New Year Celebration

Following an enormous success for the Chinese New Year Festival held at the Westchester County Center last year, the Westchester Association of Chinese Americans (WACA) will organize its 2016 Annual Celebration on Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 2pm to 6pm at the New Rochelle High School.

For this Year of the Monkey, the theme of the celebration is “Keeping an Age-old Tradition Alive”, featuring in gourmet Chinese cuisine presentation and food sampling by the local Asian restaurants, bakeries or individuals; art gallery presenting art shows, calligraphy and Chinese painting; hand craft demonstrations such as paper cutting and origami; martial arts demonstrations including Tai Chi and lion dance; as well as Chinese musical instruments performances. On top of all these, there will be a formal program of artistic performances by the professional artists and the local art groups showcasing, plus a marvelous presentation of Chinese professional acrobats. And best of all, the early bird price for this year will remain at $15 for adult and $10 for elderly and children, a bargain you can’t find anywhere in the county.

This year marks the 27th anniversary of this annual Chinese New Year celebration event organized by WACA, and the upcoming 2016 celebratory activities are going to be held with support from many local businesses and organizations.

So please come to spend an afternoon with us to enjoy the festive atmosphere of the Chinese New Year, to learn the rich history and culture of China and to taste the delicacies that this culture has to offer.

This event is sponsored by TD Bank, and supported by HXGNY, HXNYC, HXSCS, NYCS, NWCS, CSSW, OCA-WHV, FCC, and Verizon.
