We’d like to thank our amazing volunteers for making this year’s Boston Chinatown Lunar New Year Celebration a success!
From holding flags to dropping lion heads & a dragon off to going to all the shops so that they’d be ready for us to steering the drum cart to making sure our supply cart was stocked to crowd control and to everything else in between — we THANK YOU!
The arctic temperatures did not cooperate with us last Sunday, but the celebration has been rescheduled for the upcoming Sunday on February 21, 2016 at 10AM!
Again, the event will kick off at 1oAM on Harrison Avenue in Boston Chinatown (near Kaze Shabu Shabu, Cha Time, Beard Papa’s, and Asian Garden Restaurant) with stage performances. Lion dancers will then go around with their troupes to all the shops and restaurants blessing them and bringing good fortune for the new year.
GK will be making their way up to Salem for the Peabody Essex Museum‘s Lunar New Year Celebration! We will be kicking the event off with a lion dance in the atrium by the GK Cubs and much more!
Kick off PEM’s Lunar New Year celebrations with a lion dance performance by Gund Kwok, the only all-women lion dance group in the country. The Gund Kwok Lion Cubs, a group of 6- to 9-year-olds who have mastered lion dance skills, get the festivities started.
GK will help celebrate the lunar new year with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston on February 6th with lion dance performances at 1:30PM and 3:30PM. Admission to the museum will be FREE!
Visit the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to ring in the Year of the Monkey! Explore Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese traditions while enjoying activities, demonstrations, and performances throughout the day. Be sure to find the vibrant floral arrangements around the building and stop in for an Asian-inspired lunch at the Garden Cafeteria. And visit the MFA’s newest display, featuring art from the prosperous and vibrant Song dynasty (960–1279)—regarded as a pinnacle of Chinese art and aesthetics.
The GK Dragonettes will take the stage at 1PM on Saturday, January 30th at North Quincy High School in Quincy, MA to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
This year’s event still includes free live entertainment, along with a new karaoke session featuring a DJ in the auditorium. There will be a New Year market inspired by the night markets found in Asia, which will feature retail vendors selling traditional goods for New Year and crafts from local artists and businesses.
The event is FREE and open to the public from 1PM-7PM. For more information, check Quincy Asian Resource for all the latest updates!
The Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, Inc. (BCNC) invites you to join us for our annual Chinese New Year Banquet on Friday, March 6, 2015 at the Empire Garden Restaurant in Chinatown. We will celebrate the Year of the Sheep with good fortune and prosperity.
The BCNC Chinese New Year banquet is an annual sold-out event and one of the largest community celebrations in Chinatown, with 600 guests in attendance. This year, we will present the Friends of BCNC Award to Renee Inomata and Paul Lee, and the Amelia Peabody Foundation.
The banquet also serves as the biggest fundraiser for BCNC, raising much needed funds to provide essential services to 2,000 children, youth and adults a year. BCNC’s banquet leverages great visibility and showcases your philanthropic partnership with the Asian community. The banquet includes a wine and dim-sum reception, a traditional dinner, a live auction, and a silent auction.
Here’s about 25 minutes of lion parading and music from this past Sunday’s Boston Chinatown Lunar New Year Lion Parade. Thanks again to all our volunteers and friends for sticking with us from the beginning starting from about 9AM until we finished at about 4:30PM!
