Lunar New Year: Save the Date to Celebrate

Celebrate Rockville’s Asian cultures with performances, to-go activities and snacks at the city’s Lunar New Year celebration.

The annual celebration will be held from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10, at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre at Rockville Civic Center Park, 603 Edmonston Drive. Multicultural performances begin at 6:15 p.m.

Admission is free, but tickets will be required, with a maximum of four per household. Find additional details, as they become available, and tickets, beginning Monday, Jan. 10, at www.rockvillemd.gov/lunarnewyear.

In its 14th year, the Lunar New Year celebration is a source of pride for the city’s Asian community and an educational opportunity for neighbors to learn about Asian culture. The city is organizing the celebration in partnership with Rockville’s Asian Pacific American Task Force.

The celebration will mark 4720, the Year of the Tiger on the Chinese Zodiac calendar. One in three Rockville residents was born outside the United States and 54 percent of the city’s foreign-born population was born in Asia, according to the city’s planning department.
