SF’s Annual Lunar Year Celebration

The San Francisco Botanical Garden Society recently invited city residents to join in the 13th Annual Lunar Year Celebration and Flower Market at the San Francisco County Fair Building. The event, which will take place on January 21st, celebrates the Year of the Dragon with flowers, food and festivities. The event is family-oriented, and admission is free.

“This celebration is so important for our families every year. It’s a time to unite together and share the good fortune of the coming year,” said Eleanor Lew, SFBGS community organizer and volunteer.

At this year’s celebration, Alice Fong Yu School and West Coast Lion dancers will perform classical stringed instruments and cultural dances. Other activities include a magic show by Jaden Huang, a puppet show by the Chinese Historical Society of America, a Vital Tea Leaf Tea Room and Tea Tastings, story time, Asian arts and crafts for children, a talk by Chinatown historian Lyle Jan and much more.

Pacific Coast Farmer’s Market, Tru Courmet Organic Dim Sum, Little Vietnam Café and others will also offer Asian cuisine at the event.

The San Francisco Botanical Garden will provide a perceptible perspective of Asian culture and nature by presenting a collection of rare and endangered plants from across the continent.

According to Associate Curator David Kruse-Pickler the Garden provides “an immersive experience in four of our garden sections for those that might want to take a botanical journey from Burma to China and Thailand to Indonesia, Japan and even New Guinea.”

One of the main organizers of the Lunar New Year event added that “Bilingual signs for some of the trees and plants in the Garden are put out during the LNY Event.”
