Time: 1PM
Location: Oxbow Public Market
610 & 644 First Street
Napa, CA 94559

Join Tillerman Tea as they welcome the Year of the Rabbit and Chinese New Year with their annual lion dance celebration. Festivities begin with an exciting lion dance throughout the market, performed by the celebrated San Francisco Wushu Team. Chinese lion dancing is a traditional art that originated many centuries ago, and celebrates happy, festive, and auspicious occasions. These creatures and their thundering musical accompaniment are believed to dispel evil spirits and ensure prosperity, abundance, and good fortune. Following the lion dance, San Francisco’s Guzheng Society will perform traditional Chinese music for Oxbow guests, and Tillerman Tea will provide red envelopes and dim sum throughout the afternoon, while supplies last.

Enjoy a traditional Chinese New Years celebration filled with good luck and fun for the entire family. Xin nian kuai le! Happy New Year!
