The World Affairs Council's 26th Annual Chinese New Year Celebration

The World Affairs Council of St. Louis is excited to announce that its 26th Annual Chinese New Year Celebration will be held Friday, February 3, 2017, from 6:00-10:00 PM at the St. Louis Ritz-Carlton Ballroom. 

Our Chinese New Year celebration attracts about 300 people a year and features an exceptional Chinese banquet, interested and varied reception activities (many are new), impressive entertainment, multiple raffles with substantive prizes, and an oral auction conducted by a professional auctioneer. 2017 is the “Year of the Rooster”; the Rooster being one of the signs of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 animal signs.  Those born in the Year of the Rooster tend to be hardworking, resourceful, courageous, and honest. Guests, from all segments of our community, return year after year to enjoy an evening celebrating the Chinese culture.
