When one door closes, a window opens. Understanding that this year’s celebration would look different, we knew we had to think outside of the box and create a new element to our celebration to satiate the public’s desire to get out and experience something safely.
The Chinese Chamber of Commerce of San Francisco is excited to debut, The Year of the Ox on Parade. A tradition in the making, 11 life-sized Oxen will be publicly displayed across San Francisco to help ring in the new year of the Ox. Thanks to our sponsors, we were able to work with local artists to design each Ox to reflect upon the Chinese culture, people, and traditions. After our celebration, each Ox will be auctioned off to benefit our local Chinatown non-profit organizations.
