CAFAM Events


Come join CAFAM for Tai Chi at the Farmers Market on Saturdays and starting on JUNE 16th!


Tai chi is a mind-body exercise that is simultaneously easy to begin and near-impossible to perfect. All ages and experience levels are welcome.

Tai Chi at the Farmers Market is an introduction to a longstanding Chinese practice of community-building and personal wellness that prioritizes showing up and practicing over performance. It’s also a great way to make new friends and meet new neighbors.

WHEN: 9am-10am every Saturday June – August

WHERE: By the rose garden at Deering Oaks Park during the Farmers’ Market.

COST: Free – donations welcome!

Professional Tai Chi instructor Karen Morency is great at bringing folks in after a lesson has begun, so don’t be afraid to jump in if you’re running late!

Thursday, Dec 13th, 5:30-7 pm, at Maine College of Art, in conjunction with the opening of an exhibit by Chinese artist Yu-wen Wu. This is part of MECA’s Making Migrations Visible initiative.

The History of Chinese in Maine: Talk & Reception

While there has been a relatively small population of Chinese residents of Maine over the years, those who have settled here have made their mark, dating back to the first Chinese immigrant who came in 1857. Come hear some stories about these early Chinese Mainers, and also enjoy some Chinese tea and snacks, sponsored by the Chinese & American Friendship Association of Maine
