College to celebrate the Year of the Dragon
Okanagan College Media Release

Okanagan College’s International Education department is hosting its annual Chinese New Year and International Celebration on Friday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. in Kelowna.

The success of last year’s celebration left the College’s lecture theatre bursting at the seams. This year, organizers have moved the popular event to the Kelowna Community Theatre.

More than 20 cultural performances will take place in honour of the Year of the Dragon. Performers will include College students, employees and well-known cultural groups such as the Chinese Freemasons Club of Canada and the Latin Dance Club. Spectators can expect to see the Lion Dance, a traditional Japanese dance as well as an African dance performance.

Entry into the event is by donation – proceeds will support the Okanagan College International Student Scholarship Fund. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and international cuisine will be available during the intermission.

Tickets are now available at the Okanagan College International Education Office – 1000 KLO Road and will also be available at the door.

Space is still available for additional cultural performers – contact Masami Kostiuk at mkostiuk@okanagan.bc.ca for more information.
