DEADWOOD – Deadwood History’s Chinese New Year Party will be held at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center on Saturday, February 10, 2024, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The workshop is suggested for students in grades K-6. The program is free but reservations are required. Call Education Director Tera Richards at 605-578-1657 for reservations or more information.

Children are invited to hear how Chinese New Year is celebrated and why this holiday is important in Chinese culture and to Deadwood’s history. They will learn what the Year of the Dragon means for 2024 and the traditions that make Chinese New Year so unique. Author Robin Carmody will be reading from her book, But Nana….Where Was Deadwood’s Chinatown? Students will create a Chinese lantern with a dragon face to take home. The workshop will also include a Chinese style lunch and a red envelope ceremony.

The workshop is co-sponsored by the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Deadwood History, Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation, Edith Wong and Beatrice Wong, and Robin Carmody.
