Here is a long blurb on LNY that can be edited or used for a press release where applicable:

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 drumming, and Chinese painting and drawing.  We also invite special guest performances, which have included the renowned Chhandam Youth Dance Company (classical Indian dance Kathak), lion dancing, and local Asian and Pacific Islander singer/songwriters. 

The event also includes hands-on activities facilitated by artists, visual art exhibits, and tabling opportunities for local non-profit, social service, and arts and culture organizations.  Finally, the event includes a small arts and crafts marketplace and tabling opportunities for individuals and businesses.

Location and Time

This free event will be held at OACC, located in the Pacific Renaissance Plaza (PRP) in Oakland’s Chinatown and downtown Oakland.  OACC is just 3 blocks away from the 12th St. BART station and numerous AC Transit bus stops.  Parking is also available in the attached PRP garage.  The event will be held Saturday, February 27th from 11a-3pm.

OACC is supported by the City of Oakland, City of Oakland Cultural Funding Program, the San Francisco Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and other generous foundations and individual donors.
