Oakland Asian Cultural Center

Lunar New Year (LNY), also known as Spring Festival, is noted as being the most important holiday in Chinese culture, and is also celebrated in Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Mongolian, and Tibetan cultures. Since 2005, the Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC) has hosted a free public Lunar New Year Celebration at our venue, located in the heart of Oakland’s Chinatown (easily accessible by public transit and personal vehicle).

OACC’s free LNY celebration will consist of an array of cultural performances by professional and amateur performers sharing contemporary works as well as traditional forms, and combinations thereof. The LNY celebration serves as an open house for OACC where we showcase performances, demonstrations, and activities by teachers and students of classes at OACC. These include Mongolian folk dance, Chinese folk dance, Gung Fu, Qi Gong, Guzheng (zither) music, Japanese Taiko
