As a part of the Dragon Boat Festival, people celebrate by wrapping and eating zongzi together with loved ones. Join Teaching Artist Sophia Hsu as she teaches us how to make some Taiwanese-style zongzi (粽子). These delicious sticky rice bundles wrapped in bamboo leaves will leave your stomach and heart filled with glee! Share your delicious creations with us @mocanyc on social media, DMing us, or emailing images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Taught by a martial arts master from the New York Chinese Cultural Center, this introductory workshop introduced attendees to some basic stances, strikes, as well as a modified “Dragon” routine.

Double Fifth Fortunes
The Dragon Boat Festival, typically held in June, is considered one of the unluckiest days of the year. Fend off bad luck by catching lucky plants and herbs — like pomegranate flowers, Chinese ixora, and calamus — and avoiding the five poisonous pests (五毒) — the lizard, toad, centipede, spider, and scorpion— in this digital game you’ll want to play more than once.
The race is on! The Dragon Boat race, that is! Attendees joined us at MOCAKIDS Storytime for Duan Wu Jie, or the Dragon Boat Festival, as we read Dragon Boat Festival Wishes and Mulan and the Dragon Race. We sang some songs and practiced our paddling. We even made a special boat craft too!
