The year of the dog ends at the new moon on 4 February. 2019 is the year of the Earth Pig and the Chinese horoscope recommends concentrating this year on family and friends. The Konfuzius Institute Leipzig, together with its partners, the Konfuzius Kindergarten and the Restaurant Nin Hao, invites to celebrate the Chinese New Year together.

The organizers of the Chinese Spring Festival lure with Chinese folklore. On the stage of Hall A in Werk 2, for example, they will perform a lion dance and let the exotic sounds of the pumpkin flute and Chinese zither ring out. According to Linus Schlüter from the Confucius Institute, it is going to be a colourful afternoon with plays, handicrafts, karaoke and food stands.

The event is also supported by the Deutsch-Chinesisches-Zentrum Leipzig.

Admission: 2.30 pm, start: 3 pm, Admission: FREE!
