Chinese New Year International Festival

Submitted By Sugi Shiva

This year's Lunar New Year - Year of the Snake - will be celebrated throughout the month of February with a collection of Chinese culture, art, history, and traditional food courtesy of Chinese Restaurant Foundation. The International Chinese New Year Celebration is the first ever month long Chinese New Year event in the San Francisco Bay Area and will be an enriching experience for local citizens and children.

During the festival, the restaurant foundation will host exhibits of food, art, culture, and travel related to Chinese cuisine and China's history with the United States. Calligraphy, Lion dance, presentation on Chinese culture and tradition, art exhibit depicting the fusion of East and West, and a history exhibit on 160 years of Chinese Cuisine in the U.S. will be on display for all attendees to learn from and enjoy. There will also be take-home goodie bags for children.

A variety of traditional Chinese New Year foods will be served, from specialty foods to street snacks. Ranch 99, in addition to other Chinese restaurants within the Tri-City area, will be catering.

The festival will be open to the public from February 1 to Feb 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday-Friday and weekends from noon - 4 p.m. School tours require prior registration, and admission is free.

The Chinese Restaurant Foundation is a non-profit organization, whose main goals are to promote Chinese and American culinary interactions, with an emphasis on increasing the understanding of Chinese culture in Northern America and helping spread the influence of Chinese cuisine across the culinary realm.
