As a community hub for sharing culture, art, and the many fascinating stories connected to Vancouver’s Chinatown, the Chinatown Storytelling Centre offers a range of programs for the whole family to enjoy. We’ll be inviting community elders, authors, artists, and performers to share their stories and talents in an intimate setting.

Chinese Lunar New Year 101 with Bob Sung (Virtual)

Saturday, January 29, 2022 - 2-3pm PST
Virtual (Zoom)

Why is it bad luck to wash your hair or sweep the floor on New Year’s Day? What’s up with the fish? Longevity noodles? And bring on those red envelopes!

Bob Sung, who leads Vancouver's popular “A Wok Around Chinatown” and "A Wok Around Granville Island" tours, gives us the Lunar-low-down. As a proud third-generation Chinese Canadian, Bob's culinary background is firmly rooted in his family’s 70-year involvement in the food & hospitality industry in British Columbia.

We're thrilled to invite you to join Bob as we share stories, traditional recipes, and more to usher in the Year of the Tiger!

Free. If you are able, please consider making a donation to support our work here in the heart of Vancouver's Chinatown.
