Chinese Festival this Friday!


Miami University’s Confucius Institute invites the community to its first Chinese Festival Friday, Sept. 26. Enjoy a host of activities and experience Asian food tasting 2-8:30 p.m. on Miami’s campus and uptown Oxford. The Chinese Festival coincides with a global event celebrating the 10th anniversary of establishing more than 1,000 Confucius institutes across the world.

Activities begin at Cook Field (2-4 p.m.) and end at Oxford’s Uptown Park (5:30-8:30 p.m.). At Cook Field, learn tai chi and the art of kite flying. At the Uptown Park, festival-themed activities include games, raffles, food tasting and language lessons.

More than 200 high school students from several districts join local community members and Miami students to perform and share their knowledge about Chinese culture.

Kung fu master Fusheng Miao is scheduled to perform and teach during the evening festivities.

In the event of rain, activities will be moved to Miami’s Shriver Center.
