East Tennessee Chinese New Year Festival
This large celebration, held yearly in February during the Chinese New Year, brings together all the major Chinese Organizations in Knoxville and surrounding areas for an evening of song, dance, martial arts, and other performances to celebrate Chinese Culture and the coming of Spring!
Our 2016 show -- the Year of the Monkey -- was held on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016 from 3:30 - 5:30 pm in the Alumni Memorial Building on the University of Tennessee Campus. We put on a very special show this year, with our special guest Prof. Linghui Tu (shown in the photos above) from the National Academy of Chinese Theater Arts and the Confucius Institute of Chinese Opera. She performed five acts of music, dancing, singing, and more for us. We also featured acts by many talented local performers in our wonderful variety show.
