February 12 - February 19

Free


OACC is celebrating the Lunar New Year differently this year!

Happy Lunar New Year | 恭喜發財 新年快樂 (Gong Xi Fa Cai! Xin Nian Kuai Le!) | Chúc mừng năm mới | 새해 복 많이 받으세요 | Шинэ жилийн баярын мэнд хvргэе | 明けおめ ことよろ | Losar Bey Tashi Delek
Happy Year of the Ox to all! OACC envisions vibrant, healthy, and just communities where diverse APIA identities and heritage are affirmed and celebrated. Due to COVID-19 challenges, we are shifting our celebration to a week-long festival of virtual/online programs that highlight various Asian countries that celebrate the Lunar New Year such as China, Vietnam, Korea, and more. Together with our community partners and local artists, OACC will present engaging, diverse pre-recorded content with performances, demonstrations, and more accessible content linked to the schedule thumbnails below.
All week long (and beyond), we hope you engage with us and support AAPI-owned and AAPI-ally businesses, artists, and creatives who are our beloved community.

Fill out our survey by Friday, March 19, 2021 at 5pm PST to be entered into a special raffle drawing for OACC-exclusive goods!

Enjoy our kick-off broadcast originally aired on Friday, February 12, 2021. 

CONTENT SCHEDULE:

All pre-recorded content is about 15-30 minutes long ~ but we encourage you to explore the pages for any downloadable activities or visit the Virtual Community Night Market to support our community!

About the Virtual Community Night Market

The Virtual Community Night Market (Night Market) will be a virtual “one-stop-shop” marketplace featuring Oakland/Bay Area-based and Oakland values-inspired businesses and creatives from AAPI-owned and AAPI-ally restaurants and small businesses, including BIPOC businesses and artists. The Virtual Community Night Market will serve as an online directory, which will be active from February 12, 2021, to April 19, 2021, timing its first and final weeks with OACC’s new year-related programming in mid-February and mid-April.

To participate as a virtual vendor, please fill out this google form. There is a $30 vendor booth fee associated with the application. We will still be accepting vendors even after the launch.

Become a New Year Celebration Sponsor!

To undertake such an initiative requires the assistance and partnership of more than 20 local artists, organizations, and instructors as well as financial support to offset various event costs such as tech equipment and artists’ stipends. Support of the OACC New Year Celebration will provide your organization or company with an effective way to communicate your message and service to thousands of potential customers in the Bay Area. New Year sponsors will receive a range of recognition and benefits. We look forward to working with your team to ensure that your organization is highlighted to the maximum level possible.
