The biggest development in the Chinese community in the last two years is the increasing interactions among the groups, each of which typically represent a faction of the community. They started to reach a consensus on the challenges and issues faced by the community as a whole. In particular, they all agree that they should work together on helping revitalize Portland’s Old Town Chinatown and preserve its rich culture and heritage. As a symbolic step for the joint effort from the Chinese community, they have decided to hold a Chinatown Chinese New Year Celebration, anticipating that it will take on life and become an annual event in Chinatown.

The Celebration will be held on February 18, 2018, from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm, at the NW Davis Festival Street, between NW 3rd and 4th Avenues. A stage will be erected on the street to provide cultural performances from various groups in the community. The audience will be entertained with folk dance, Wushu, lion dance and music with Chinese instruments. Families are welcome to join hands-on traditional activities to be held on the 3rd floor of the CCBA building, located to the north side of the stage including; calligraphy, paper cutting, sculpting hand-made figurines, Mahjong, and of course, receiving red packets. For the first time ever, all the traditional Chinese associations in Chinatown will open to the public for guided tours.
