Join us at Yucai Chinese School this Chinese New Year to experience some fun (and tasty!) traditional Chinese New Year activities, and learn about the history of this important Chinese holiday as well.
We’ll be ringing in the new year by making dumplings, writing Chinese couplets (traditional wall decorations), decorating opera masks, tieing Chinese knots, and tasting some excellent Chinese tea and desserts. Each activity will have it’s own station, so make sure to try them all!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask them on this event page or email them to [email protected]. We can’t wait to see you there!
Note: both pork and veggie dumplings will be available.
