Celebrate the Year of the Monkey in grand style
The UBC Centennial Lunar New Year Festival is an intercultural celebration of Lunar New Year traditions, for all members of the UBC community. It is a great opportunity to get involved in one of the campus’ largest cultural events.
Come share in the excitement of the Lunar New Year with fun, educational and interactive arts and crafts, games, musical and dance performances, and cultural activities for people of all ages.
February 8 marks the beginning of the Year of the Monkey for many families around the world including Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese. Traditionally held as a 15-day festival, Lunar New Year is a significant time for many UBC students, faculty and staff, alumni, and families across the Lower Mainland.
We acknowledge that this event will be taking place on the occupied, unceded, traditional, and ancestral territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nation.
