“Ji Li” 笄禮 – Chinese Traditional Adulthood Ceremony for Girls, 1:00pm-2:00pm – RSVP only!

June 8 @ June 8 - June 8

FREE

It is our great pleasure to announce a very special event honoring our long-time volunteer leader Brenda He, who joined Glow Cultural Center (GCC) in 2021 and is about to embark on her next stage in life – college at Boston University!

For GCC, it is important for us to not only commemorate, but also celebrate everything Brenda has contributed to our community. Inspired by the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival (Duanwu Jie) and graduation season, we innovated to fuse traditional Chinese cultural practices and the corresponding American high school prom tradition to create what we believe is the FIRST public Chinese traditional adulthood ceremony in New York.

Time:

June 8th, Saturday, 1:00 PM-2:00 PM, right before the Dragon Boat Festival Cultural Fair!

SCHEDULE

Kicking off with a “Story of Qu Yuan” minidrama (迷你舞台剧:《屈原的故事》) from Zao Learning Education, the official ceremony will take around 30 minutes. Photos & guest remarks will be allowed after the ritual concludes!

RSVP here~
