Event added by Maria C.

​Join the Chinese American Museum DC and the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office as they illuminate the Lantern Festival, the magnificent end to the Chinese New Year celebration.

It’s been around since the Han Dynasty, but the Spring Lantern Festival may be a tradition less familiar to some. Learn about the craft of lanterns, see fascinating scenes of Hong Kong artisans, and share memories of the holiday. Special guests offer different perspectives about how the holiday shapes childhood memories from Hong Kong to Washington, DC.
