MONTCLAIR, NJ – AAPI Montclair and the Montclair Art Museum (MAM) will host AAPI Montclair’s first Lunar New Year Celebration outdoors at the Montclair Art Museum located at 3 South Mountain Avenue in Montclair, New Jersey on Saturday, February 12, 2022 from 12:00-3:00pm (inclement weather date: February 26).
Lunar New Year is celebrated by billions of people around the world, and for many, it is a time for family reunions, plenty of food, and loud celebrations.
AAPI Montclair’s first-ever Lunar New Year celebration will feature family-friendly educational, cultural, and social activities to teach community members about Lunar New Year and offer a chance to celebrate and learn together. The many facets of Lunar New Year will be reflected in cultural performances, art, craft activities, and in food and merchandise for purchase, all outside on the grounds of the Montclair Art Museum.
AAPI Montclair’s mission is to create a more inclusive community through uplifting the experiences and cultures of our diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander residents, advocating for our representation and rights, and promoting awareness and education of AAPI history and culture. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Kaija Jung Anderson Memorial Scholarship, which honors the life of a second-grade girl from our community by supporting graduating seniors who exemplify her spirit of compassion, curiosity, and courage.
Admission is free for MAM members. General admission is $5 for non-members, with fee waivers available. To RSVP, donate, or learn more, visit aapimontclair.org.
