Chinese New Year Celebration
The Chinese New Year (CNY) Celebration is the largest and most anticipated event for the Maine and New England-wide community. It draws over 750 people each year and attendance continues to grow, especially with our newest, state-of-the-art venue at Westbrook Middle School and Performing Arts Center.

Our annual celebration appeals to all kinds of community members for many of the following features:
- Intriguing speakers, including New York Times best-selling author, Tess Gerritsen
- Interactive demonstrations, such as martial arts by the Riverview Foundation
- Exciting Chinese folk song and dance performances
- Fun arts and crafts for the whole family
- Delicious Chinese food and local vendors
As we continue to grow and flourish, CAFAM’s mission for cultural awareness and community growth pushes the organization to its limits to provide a fresh and exciting new CNY program each year.
