Lunarfest 2018

February 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Celebrate the Year of the Dog in New Haven on Saturday, February 17, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., as the New Haven Museum teams with the Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University and the Yale-China Association, to co-host Lunarfest 2018. The event offers fascinating hands-on workshops, talks, and performances for all ages.

Lunarfest begins at 10 a.m. with a lion dance and performances on Whitney Avenue, between Grove Street and Trumbull Street, and onto Audubon Street, and remarks by Mayor Toni Harp. The fun moves indoors at 1 p.m. to three locations: New Haven Museum (114 Whitney Ave.), The Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University, Luce Hall (34 Hillhouse Ave.), and the Yale-China Association (442 Temple St.). Activities include children’s arts and crafts, calligraphy, music, dance lessons, paper-lantern making, language classes, cooking demonstrations, poetry, theatre, exhibits and more.

All activities are free and open to the public, but space is limited for some activities. For more information, or to register, please visit www.yalechina.org/lunarfest, email lunarfest@yalechina.org, or call 203-432-3427.
