Calling Chinese adoptees of all ages, families, and friends:

Celebrate the Year of the Rat with us in Chinatown!

FCCNE and CCI (China's Children International) are teaming up at the Pao Arts Center with Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center once again for a special Lunar New Year Celebration!

On Sunday February 2 from 10:00am to 4:00pm, the biggest Lunar New Year parades in New England take over Boston's Chinatown, with troupes of colorful lion dancers performing on the streets and in restaurants and businesses.

Watch the lion dance parades on the streets of Chinatown, then stop by the Pao Arts Center anytime from 11:00am to 3:00pm to warm up and enjoy fun family-friendly lunar new year activities, including: 

  • storytelling with Company One Theatre
  • Chinese and English calligraphy demonstrations with Rayna Lo
  • art making with the Museum of Fine Arts
  • our popular Lunar Wish Tree and low key lunar new year themed activities with FCCNE and CCI (This is also a good place to get away from the noisy firecrackers if anyone is scared!)

Register ahead to take part in these special workshops:

  • 12:00pm, 1:00 pm or 2:00pm - FREE 30 minute Lion Dance Workshops for 5-12 years old with Nüwa Athletic Club. Are your kids excited by the colors, sounds, and movements of Chinese Lion Dance on the streets of Chinatown? Come inside and learn the steps of this traditional Chinese dance yourself and ring in the new year!  FREE but space is limited so please register here with BCNC.

All are welcome! We want to see you there - adoptees of all ages - college students, teens, children - their families and friends! Come by yourself or with a friend and meet FCCNE and CCI members, families and adoptees - we look forward to seeing you there.
