In conjunction with the Idaho Chinese Community, Northwest Nazarene University will host a Chinese New Year celebration on February 11 at 2:30 – 5 p.m. in NNU’s Brandt Center located at 705 Fern St. in Nampa.

The annual event will celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year (Year of the Dragon) and promote Chinese culture through dragon and lion dance and traditional Chinese dancing and singing.  Other activities and events include a Chinese fashion show, martial arts, music and drama performances.

“Our hope in bringing this celebration to Nampa is to help educate Idahoans about Chinese culture while showcasing the cohesive and talented Chinese community here in the Treasure Valley,” President of the Idaho Chinese Association Jie Sun shared.

Admission is $7 for adults (ages 13+), and free to children under age 12.  For more information on the events listed, visit www.idahochinese.org or email info@idahochinese.org.

In addition to the celebration, Northwest Nazarene University is pleased to announce the opening of the Center for Chinese Studies in cooperation with the Hanban Institute of Beijing.  This Institute will be dedicated to teaching Mandarin as well as various areas of Chinese Cultural studies.  The center will open this spring and classes will be offered the fall 2012.
