A Grand Parade led by a 70-foot dancing dragon opens our annual springtime festival of Chinese culture.

Chinese Culture Days festival features acrobatics, square dances, tea and cooking demonstrations, traditional artwork and authentic regional cuisine.

Enjoy special activities in the Grigg Nanjing Friendship Chinese Garden.

Since 1996, the Garden has collaborated with the Chinese Culture Education and Services Foundation to produce an event to celebrate Chinese culture. Hundreds of community volunteers work towards producing a weekend filled with colorful Chinese pageantry, art, music and dance, history and legends, and of course, wonderful food! 

Thank you for helping support our mission.

Chinese Culture Days Festival ticket sales helps to raise funds for our mission “To discover and share knowledge about plants and their environment in order to preserve and enrich life" here in Missouri and around the world.
