This is being presented by my friends at the UNH ‘Confucius Institute‘.

This is their FIRST Mid-Autumn Festival.

In the past they have done Chinese festivals in February to coincide with the Chinese New Year.

This should be GOOD, very good. The UNH Confucius Institute specializes in EXCELLENCE.

Tickets are going FAST. But, try. You might be lucky.

I Leading A Chinese Dragon Parade On Concord Main Street During ‘Market Days’ — June 24, 2017.

This was Serendipitous to say the least. Yes, I arranged for this ‘Dragon Parade‘ to take place in Concord for the 2017 ‘Multicultural Festival‘ but I was NOT supposed to he heading it. The plan was that it would be headed by a Chinese who knew how to ‘dance’ the head. And that is how we set off. The tall, lanky gentleman behind me, on the second pole, at the head. I had the second pole so I could tell him which way to go. BUT, the head is heavy and it was windy and holding it up, while being buffeted by the wind, gets hard. So, halfway through we asked me if I would swap. I wasn’t going to say NO. It was a blast and rare honor. Not sure whether I will ever get the chance again. This is the only picture I have. 


This, however, was not the first time I have headed a Chinese Dragon Parade. I had done it, in 2015, with this same dragon, at the UNH ‘Confucius Institute‘, Chinese New Year Miaohui (Temple Fair) celebrations.

For the last few years (to my knowledge), the ‘University of New Hampshire‘ (at Durham), under the able patronage of their ‘Confucius Institute‘ (led by the v. charismatic and capable Dr. Yige Wang), always does something special to mark the Chinese New Year.

In 2016 & 2014 it was a Miaohui (Temple Fair), with Dragon Dancing etc. They were a LOT of fun. See this post … and this.

chineseny2017111Then in 2013 it was mind-blowingly good ‘Gala Performance‘.

This year, for a change, it is this Woodblock Exhibition & Workshop — with a live Jazz band from the local Oyster River Middle School.

It should be good. UNH/Confucius Institute have a very good track record.

Happy Chinese New Year. Year of the Rooster.

2016 Chinese New Year: UNH (Durham, NH) Miaohui (Temple Fair) On February 4.

by Anura Guruge


The UNH (Durham, New Hampshire), ‘Confucius Institute‘, as they did, with great success last year, will again host a Chinese Temple Fair, a Miaohui, on February 4th, 2016, to celebrate the Chinese New Year, the ‘Year of the Red Monkey‘. As it was last year it will be free and open to the public. I will provide more details as I get them. I just wanted to give you a heads up, as soon as I heard about it, so that you can mark it on your calendar.

Last year’s was an unqualified success and we had a ball.

I am already getting excited. Less than a month away.

Check out the pictures and videos from last year. Happy New Year.


Last Year’s Miaohui.
