Celebrate the Chinese New Year in grand style with lion dancers, martial artists, masked performers, and more at a special Lunar New Year Nightlife event at the California Academy of Sciences on Feb. 6 in San Francisco.

Attendees can create and take home kinetic dragon sculptures with the help of SCRAP SF, and be amazed by Bian Lian, an ancient Chinese mask performance that’s part opera, part mystery.

Looking for a little wisdom? Pick up customized fortune cookies, participate in a traditional Chinese tea ceremony with Flourishing Oasis, and make good fortune scrolls with the Chinese Historical Society of America.

In the Piazza, catch a powerful performance by the Jing Mo Athletic Association, a Chinatown-based martial arts performance troupe. Plus, practice the prowess of a lion with a lion dance workshop and demonstration.

Then, let the pros show you how it’s done as they perform an authentic lion dance routine in honor of Chinese New Year live on the Piazza stage.

At the Project Lab, celebrate the Year of the Horse by viewing anatomical drawings of horses from the Academy’s library archives.

Music will be provided by Wild 949 DJ J Espinosa.

The celebration is a 21+ event, ID required for entry.

This year is the Wood Horse (Lunar Year 4712) in China.
