Two Lunar New Year Celebrations in one

When it comes to community celebrations of the Year of the Pig in the Borough, there is good news and bad news.

Bad news first: Queens Theatre’s first ever Lunar New Year event on Sunday, Feb. 3, sold out in less than four hours.

But there is plenty of good news too.

At the same time, our Flushing Meadows Corona Park neighbor, Queens Museum, is hosting its Fifth Annual Lunar New Year Celebration for Families in conjunction with the New York Chinese Cultural Center.

The Museum’s FREE event gets underway at 1pm on Feb. 3 with performances from artists and students of the NYCCC. The afternoon’s entertainment includes Kung Fu demonstrations, ethnic and regional dances, classical songs performed on traditional Chinese instruments and a lively rendition of NYCCC’s red ribbon-dance.

Following the show, an NYCCC instructor will lead a workshop on the art of Chinese Ink Brush Painting. Participants will take brush to paper and head home with their own creations. Throughout the afternoon, Queens Museum educators will host drop-in Chinese Lantern-making workshops and storytelling about the Chinese zodiac.

The afternoon ends when Queens Theatre audience members and Queens Museums guests converge for a reception at the Museum.

The Queens Theatre FREE shuttle will begin running between the Mets-Willets Point Station on the 7 line and the theatre’s main entrance at 1:00pm. It will also take guests back to the subway after the reception.
