Wan Qing Festival Of Spring
Festive Offerings + Lion & Dragon Dances + More!

Usher in the Year of the Rat at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall’s Lunar New Year celebrations! Wan Qing Festival of Spring 2020 presents an exciting line-up of festive offerings suitable for all ages, including auspicious lion and dragon dance performances, Chinese painting and drumming workshops, heritage tours and trails, and craft activities for the little ones. Join the Memorial Hall’s signature mass lohei and toss to bountiful luck and prosperity, get your zodiac predictions for the new year, enjoy an evening concert of contemporary and traditional performing arts, and more. Photo moments are aplenty at this year's festival too. Produced by Hong Kong collectible label, BigBoysToys, in collaboration with the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, “Lunar Guardians” is an outdoor installation that pays homage to the ancient Chinese art of lion dance. Featuring two lion dance-inspired sculptures designed in a contemporary “mecha” anime style, this installation juxtaposes tradition with modernity and encourages conversations about the significance and evolution of traditions in our rapidly changing world.

Abundant festivities at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall to usher in the year of the Rat!

February 1-2, 2020. Lunar Gardens installation will be on display on the lawn of the memorial hall from now until February 9, 2020.
