Forest Green Branch Library is celebrating the Lunar New Year, a Chinese celebration of the start of a new year, with a free festival Saturday, Jan. 21.

The Lunar New Year begins Jan. 22 and lasts through Feb. 1 with a full lineup of activities and celebrations. Originally, as part of Chinese agrarian tradition, it was a holiday for farmers to rest from working in the fields.

The library will have something for the whole family, including calligraphy, crafts, dance and musical performances, a wishing tree, vendors and more. It will be an outdoor event taking place from 10:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Association of Asian American City Employees (AAACE), the Friends of the Dallas Public Library, and the Dallas Police Department are supporting the event.
