The Nevada City Chinese Lunar New Year Festival welcomes the Year of the Sheep, on Sunday, March 8, 2015, in Nevada City. Chinese New Year Festivals are rare in rural communities, and we are proud to present this celebration, our fourth year in a row. The community parade begins at 12:00 noon at the Chinese Monument on Commercial Street (the old Chinese Quarter), led by ceremonial Lion Dancers from Eastern Ways Martial Arts of Sacramento. The mini parade entourage, which includes community entries, will make its way down Commercial Street and end at the Robinson Plaza where the Lion Dancers will spearhead an afternoon of Asian culture and entertainment. Food would be available for sale on Union Street. The Festival is seeking volunteers for the following: set up, strike, parade parole (on Commericial and Union streets), food service, and clean up. Please contact Jeannie Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 530-265-2990. The Festival is also seeking sponsors. Please partner with us in bringing this family-friendly celebration once again to the community. Sponsorships of $100 and above are appreciated.
