Chinese New Year
Jacksonville’s Chinese New Year celebration is a treasured annual festival celebrating the contributions of the Chinese in Southern Oregon’s development. The day-long event is coordinated by the Southern Oregon Chinese Cultural Association (SOCCA).
SOCCA was formed as a non-profit, volunteer organization to develop and implement this wonderful event. This year’s celebration is on Saturday, February 8, 2020.
The day offers a wide variety of activities and events to explore different aspects of the ancient Chinese culture along with programs that show how the Chinese played an important role in Oregon’s early history.
The day kicks off with a parade 10:00 am. The rest of the day is filled with many entertaining and educational programs for the entire family as highlighted below.
