Chinese New YearOne of the best ways to introduce children to cultural heritage is to take them to a festival. There are many fairs and festivals to choose from in the Capital Region; so many, in fact, that it’s hard to keep track of them all. Often, I’ll find out about a fair the week of the event, when I can’t possibly add it to our family’s crazy schedule.

To keep track of it all, I’m starting a calendar of festivals, and other annual family events, and I’m encouraging you to help me fill in the blanks. Do you know of an upcoming festival, or one that we missed? Please share!
