The Colorado Springs Chinese New Year will go virtual in 2021. In previous years, the event was held indoors. For 2021, the Colorado Springs Chinese Cultural Institute will celebrate the New Year as a community-based online event with community artists and entertainers. The Colorado Springs Chinese Cultural Institute will ring in the New Year on Saturday, February 6, 2021 starting at 10 a.m.

To see the virtual event and learn more about the unique, community-based show go to www.cscci.org.

The Chinese New Year celebration has become a mainstay cultural event in Colorado Springs and 2021’s event will continue the “celebration” atmosphere as in past years. The event will feature videos of the New Year tradition with performances from community groups, like the traditional lion dance, kung fu demonstrations, traditional Chinese dances, and unique Chinese musical performances.

There will also be a “Taste of China” to whet your appetite with a family dumpling and wonton lesson and a restaurant review of the custom New Year dishes. Also, take a peek into the building of Colorado Springs’ own Tea House in Concrete Coyote Park.

This year will celebrate the Year of the Ox and covers those born in 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, and 2021. Those born in the Year of the Ox tend to be patient, speak little, and inspire confidence, though they can have fierce tempers. They tend to be engineers, painters, and architects.  Famous oxen are Jack Nicholson, Jane Fonda, Walt Disney and Anthony Hopkins.

The event and videos will be available to view starting Saturday, February 6, 2021 at 10 a.m.

The Colorado Springs Chinese Cultural Institute (CSCCI) is a non-profit organization that provides a forum for greater appreciation of Chinese culture through education and social interaction.
