About Lunar New Year Festival

February 5, 2016 @ 7pm and February 6, 2016 @ 2pm and 7pm in Edison Theatre.

Lunar New Year Festival (LNYF) is the name of a student-run organization at Washington University in St. Louis and the name of the annual performance it produces to celebrate the Lunar New Year and promote the awareness of different facets of Asian culture. The show, which is performed three times over two days at Edison Theatre in the Mallinckrodt Center on WashU's campus, is a completely student-run production involving students from various cultural groups on campus. At the same time, it allows WashU students to engage with multiple St. Louis communities by exploring Asian heritage from a traditional as well as a modern perspective.

Through a great variety of exciting performances of acting, dancing, and music, people of all backgrounds can enjoy and celebrate the New Year together. While LNYF makes its mark through the final production showcasing various facets of Asian culture, it does not stop at the level of simply "another cultural show." LNYF seeks to leave a prolonged impact upon its viewers through our skit and philanthropy. In the skit, we seek to demonstrate important issues that Asian Americans deal with on a daily basis. Additionally, each year, LNYF chooses a different philanthropy to support to not only impact the WashU community, but the St. Louis community as well.
