Celebrate the Year of the Dragon

February 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Welcome the Year of the Dragon and celebrate the Lunar New Year!  Learn about the origins of Chinese traditions such as dances, lanterns, lucky tangerines, and rattle drums through crafts and performance

We are excited to welcome a company of youth performers from the “Wakefield Lions” to perform the Lion Dance in honor of the New Year.  The Lion Dance is meant to attract good luck and chase away evil spirits for the upcoming year.

Note:  This program will be held in the function hall at the First Church of Wenham, which is across the street from the Wenham Museum.  This is because the LEGO Train will be setting up in our space for the weekend!  You may park on Arbor Street next to the First Church or in the Wenham Museum/Town Hall lot and cross Rt. 1A.  There is a light and crosswalk at the Post Office, which we highly recommend you use to cross the street!

This is a FREE community event!  Crafts will be available while supplies last.
