Chinese New Year Celebration

This will be CAAN’s 5th year to host a free Chinese New Year Celebration at Hillsboro Village to share this most important Chinese holiday!

Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville (CAAN) is a non-profit arts organization that enriches the arts and cultural life of Nashville since 2012. CAAN is organizing a “Chinese New Year Celebration @ Hillsboro Village.”

There will be professional jugglers-Playing By Air, Nashville Public Library’s Puppet Truck, Chinese dance, martial arts, music & songs, Chinese Yo-Yo, Chinese naming, arts & crafts for children, bamboo dance, Chinese language students’ presentations in addition to the traditional Chinese lion dance and dragon dance.

This year is special year of the Mouse. Chinese Arts Alliance is presenting “MOUSE BRIDE” story telling with puppets and dance. Don’t miss it!

This is a free event, open to the public of all ages. Dragon Parade around the village will conclude the celebration starting at 2:50 PM. We will use the mouse masks that we made at the Arts/Crafts workshop, and percussive instruments accompany our 60-foot long dragon making cheerful noise and bring blessings to everyone! Asian food vendors will be there too!

We encouraged you wear red or dress up in Chinese costumes to celebrate the very cheerful New Year! Please let us know that you are coming so as to plan. In case of rains or heavy snow, we will move to indoor facility.
