Lunar New Year

The Year of the Dragon

CELEBRATING LUNAR NEW YEAR

Residents are invited to join the Kamloops Museum and Archives, the Kamloops Chinese Cultural Association, and the Kamloops Chinese Freemasons to celebrate the Lunar New Year on February 10, 2024, at the museum. 2024 is the year of the dragon, and the Kamloops Chinese Cultural Association performance dragon will be on display at the museum from February 1 to 10 along with other historic artifacts from the Chinese community in Kamloops.

“This celebration is an exciting collaboration for the Kamloops Museum and Archives,” said Julia Cyr, the City’s Museum Supervisor. “Along with this being a fun celebration, it is also an opportunity for the museum to work with the Kamloops Chinese Cultural Association and the Kamloops Chinese Freemasons in partnership on re-curated permanent galleries.”

All are welcome to visit Kamloops Museum and Archives from 10:00 am–2:00 pm on Saturday, February 10, for a free celebration that will include live music, food, crafts, and activities for the whole family. Registration is not required.
