The Dragon Lion Dance Festival is a vibrant and dynamic event that celebrates Chinese culture. This traditional Chinese dance is typically performed to celebrate Chinese New Year, business openings or other important ceremonies, where performers wear an elaborate costume and mimics the movements of a dragon or lion.
Throughout the day, there will be a variety of exciting performances including Kung-Fu and Tai-Chi demonstrations, Dragon and Lion dances, mass drumming routines, dancing, singing, Chinese instruments, lucky draws and other spectacles. Visitors can participate in Chinese cultural activities at interactive stations that include a Children's Centre to keep the little ones entertained with arts and crafts.
This Festival was created with the collaboration of Kung Fu Canada Association, The Mississauga Mandarin Association, and the Hebei Association of Canada. Mississauga has a very active and proud Chinese community. Experience the glory of China!
