Celebrate the Chinese new year with CCI
Join CCI in Boston’s Chinatown as we ring in the Year of the Pig.
On February 17th, the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) will hold its annual Chinese New Year extravaganza, complete with Lion Dancing in the street and tons of fun, food, and community. They also invite participants to come warm up and let their artistic impulses flow at the centrally located Pao Arts Center.
This year, Families with Children from China New England (FCCNE) and China’s Children International (CCI) will be co-hosting a Chinese New Year activity / community room for the Chinese adoption community at the Pao Arts Center concurrent with this celebration - and we want to see you there!
You’ll be able to enjoy the festivities and lion dances, and we’ll have a separate room to come relax, warm up, and meet others in the community. We’ll also be offering free family friendly new-years themed activities for the young ones.
The event will also serve as an opportunity for older adoptees to ring in the new year through hanging out, volunteering, having bubble tea and snacks. Older adoptees have the opportunity to take shifts tabling for FCC and CCI and hold new year’s themed crafts for the little kiddo adoptees!

More UPCOMING MEET-UPs: January Film series
FCC / CCI’s Winter Film Series will bring together Chinese adoptees for screenings of recent films relevant to the adoption community and accompanying discussions on adoption, identity, race, family, and more. Join us on these cold winter days, snuggle in with hot chocolate, popcorn, and a movie, and enjoy good company, stimulating discussion, and the warmth of community.
