Asia Plaza would like to invite the media and the public to celebrate the Lunar Year Year at the Year of the Rabbit Celebration. Join us for performances, local vendors and food trucks! Children’s activity and coloring pages provided by AsiaTown Cleveland and Art Cart! View the event on Facebook.
The Lunar New Year or Spring Festival is commonly referred to as Chinese New Year, Tết in Vietnamese, Seollal (설날) in Korean, Losar ལོ་གསར in Tibet, and Tsagaan Sar in Mongolian. It is one of the most celebrated holidays in Asia and many Asian-American communities throughout the United States. 2023 is the Year of the Water Rabbit which begins on Sunday, January 22, 2023, and lasts up to fifteen days. The holiday is a time for renewal, new clothes, lucky greetings, and feasting for family and friends. It is celebrated with lucky symbolic foods, family reunions, and time spent with friends and loved ones. For a list of Lunar New Year events, visit https://ocagc.org/2023lunarnewyear/
