East Tennessee Chinese New Year Festival
This large, family-friendly variety show is held annually in late January - early February during the Chinese New Year and brings together many local Chinese organizations for an afternoon of singing, dance, martial arts, and other performances to celebrate the coming of Spring! In past years, we have had professional musicians, dancers, and singers dazzle our audience, complemented by a wide variety of talented local performers.
