One of the region’s most anticipated Chinese New Year events will return to California State University, Sacramento from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 19 in the University Union Ballroom when the University hosts the 8th annual Chinese New Year Festival celebrating the Year of the Rooster. An opening ceremony is set for 1 p.m.
