Following the outstanding success of last year, the second annual Lunar New Year Festival  offers a huge range of fun ways to celebrate: food trucks, vendor booths, a craft beer garden, kids’ activities, an art contest, a chalk art walk and of course, the best in live performance!

We have 2 great events on the Playhouse stage during the festival. Both performances will be intimate, as audience members join the artists onstage.

The events are free, and seating is limited to 150 for each show.

Event 1: Time: 2:30pm – 3:00pm, Storytelling with Barbara Wong

Come celebrate the Year of the Monkey with storyteller Barbara G. Wong as she spins a delightful tale about how monkey became the Monkey King, and a magical, interactive tale about the Yellow Dragon. Through her stories, you’ll even learn to read Chinese! Learn more about Barbara Wong.
