Chinese New Year Celebration
January 27, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Get ready to call in the Year of the Dog at the Penn Museum’s 37th Annual Chinese New Year Celebration! This family-friendly day features traditional Chinese music and dance, contemporary Asian film, tangram workshops, tai chi and kung fu martial arts demonstrations, storytelling, calligraphy, family crafts, a Year of the Dog Photo Contest, and much more—closing with the grand finale drums and the roar of the lion dance and parade.
Activities are held in the Museum’s Rotunda, which houses one of the finest collections of monumental Chinese art in the country, and throughout the international galleries of the Museum.
