New Year Celebration 2011

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 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 and interactive demonstrations
  • 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.

We’re happy to have you join us this year – Happy New Year!

    Looking for details on upcoming events for CNY 2013! I’m so pleased to discover this “community”! I am 1/2 Chinese & my vocabulary is limited: I adore my Grandma & am always looking for activities we can both enjoy. (yes- I AM trying to improve my Chinese!) any info on New England area Chinese/holidays/community/etc much appreciated! Thank you!
