    Colorado Springs Celebrates 24th Annual Chinese New Year 

    Colorado Springs, CO - The Colorado Springs Chinese Cultural Institute will ring in their 24th Annual Chinese New Year Celebration, the Year of the Rabbit at the City Auditorium on Saturday, January 21, 2023 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The City Auditorium is located at 221 East Kiowa.

    The New Year Celebration has become a mainstay cultural event in Colorado Springs. This year’s event marks the return of the live, in-person festival. Activities for this year will feature the traditional lion dance, kung fu demonstrations, Taiko drums, traditional Chinese dances, and Chinese musical performances.   “Chinatown” will offer an assortment of Asian-themed merchants and a “Taste of China” will whet your appetite from various food vendorsCultural performances will take place on the Main Stage, while in the “Teahouse”, people can experience more intimate musical performances.  Learn to play mahjong (a Chinese card game) or Go (a Chinese “checkers” game) or learn calligraphy in the “Tea House.” Watch exclusive Asian short films in the Lon Chaney Theater.  

    The official Chinese New Year celebration is based on a lunar calendar that begins on January 22, 2023.  The origin of the New Year celebration occurred before the advent of the written language; hence it is an oral tradition with many myths.  Through the years it has sustained as one of the few major celebrations throughout Asia.

    The Year of the Rabbit covers those born in 1939, 1951, 1963 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, and 2023.  To outsiders, the Rabbit’s kindness may make them seem soft and weak. In truth, the Rabbit’s quiet personality hides their confidence and strength. They are steadily moving towards their goal, no matter what negativity others give them.  Famous Rabbits are Albert Einstein, Bob Hope, Angeline Jolie, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Depp, and David Beckham.

    Admission for the CSCCI New Year Festival is $6 for adults, $5 for Military, students, senior (age 65+) and CSCCI members.  Children under 5 are free.  Tickets can be purchased at the door.  The Colorado Springs Chinese Cultural Institute (CSCCI) is a non-profit organization that provides a forum for greater appreciation of Chinese culture through education and social interaction.  For more information, please call CSCCI at (719)343-6003 or visit their website at www.cscci.org.
