A Celebration of the
Korean Lunar New Year
for Friends & Family
Monday, Jan. 23 | 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Every year, Koreans gather with loved ones to celebrate Seollal (설날), the traditional New Years Day based on the lunar calendar. This year, we invite you to celebrate Seollal with us at the Korean Cultural Center for an evening of authentic Korean New Years traditions:
- Yunnori (윷놀이) Tournament
- New Years inscriptions with calligrapher Myung Won Kwon
- Hanbok dressing and photos
- Traditional New Years foods
Seollal is one of the most important traditional Korean holidays, serving primarily as a time for families to reconnect and reaffirm their commitments to one another over a three-day holiday. For many, a Seollal gathering would not be complete without a combination of family, good food, group games, and beautiful Hanbok. This year, January 23 marks the beginning of the Year of the Dragon, an auspicious animal in the traditional zodiac that represents hope and courage. To learn more about Seollal, click here.
Separate RSVP Required. Update: if you did not RSVP through the link that was on this page earlier, then you should not go.
