Celebrating Chinese New Year in Portland Chinatown
February 20, 2021 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Come celebrate the Year of the Ox with the Portland Chinatown Museum! Our 150 foot dragon is sheltering in place this year due to COVID-19, but our upcoming Chinese New Year Virtual Community Roundtable event on Saturday, February 20 will be a wonderful opportunity to honor the Lunar New Year and be swept up in the sights and sounds of former Dragon Dance parades, fireworks and drums, Lion dancers, and food and costumes. Join members of our local Chinese American community to learn more about the holiday’s meaning, traditions and history as we take a look at what makes Chinese New Year in Portland so special. This family-friendly event is free and open to everyone.
