Celebrating Chinese New Year is a great annual event in Sacramento. Colorful threads began adding colorful threads to the tapestry of the Greater Sacramento Area, when Chinese emigrants participated in the California Gold Rush, beginning in 1849, and contributed to the building of the first transcontinental railroad.
Sacramentans can welcome the Year of the Rabbit on the Chinese lunar calendar, at the Chinese New Year Festival, which will begin on Saturday, February 12th at California State University, Sacramento (CSUS), 6000 J Street. The event will begin at noon in the University Union on campus. Parking is free in Parking Structure II.
