• Chinese New Year Festival to be held at The Huntington on Feb. 4–5


    Visitors can experience the beauty of Chinese music, dance, and culture at a Chinese New Year festival on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 4–5, at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. Celebrating the Year of the Dragon, the festival gets under way Saturday at 11 a.m. (grounds open at 10:30 a.m.) with an exuberant performance by dragon and lion dancers on the lawn near the north entrance to the Chinese Garden. 

    Other activities will include mask-changing performances (bian lian), painting and calligraphy demonstrations, noodle pulling, musical performances, children’s book readings, martial arts, and more. Visitors on Saturday can also purchase freshly cut flowers—a traditional way to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Activities on both days will be ongoing until 4 p.m.

    The Huntington’s Chinese Garden, Liu Fang Yuan, the Garden of Flowing Fragrance ???, will be one of the focal points of the festival. Inspired by the traditional scholar’s gardens of Suzhou, China, this breathtaking landscape features a large lake, tile-roofed pavilions, stone bridges, a tea shop, and native Chinese plants set against a wooded backdrop of oaks, redwoods, and pines.

    All festival activities are included with general admission to The Huntington: $20 adults, $15 seniors, $10 students (age 12–18), $6 youth (age 5–11), and free for children under 5. The group rate is $14 per person for groups of 15 or more. Members are admitted free. For additional information call (626) 405-2100 or visit www.huntington.org.
