Come celebrate the Lunar New Year at BAM, with free paper cutting and red envelope crafting, and BEloved™ cookie pop-up shop by The Joy of US (11am – 2pm) and a dance performance by The Huayin Performing Arts Group (2 – 2:45pm).

Chinese paper cutting, also known as jianzhi, is a traditional art form where intricate designs are hand-cut from red paper. Participants will also be able to make and decorate their own red envelope, also known as hongbao or lai see. Red envelopes are usually filled with money and gifted to family and friends during the Lunar New Year, as a means of promoting good fortune and blessings.

Seattle Chinese Times in partnership with the Washington State Department of Health are sponsoring boxes of face masks, and at home Covid-19 test kits at this event. These will be available for free to the community in our Forum (ground floor), while supplies last.
