Chinese Culture Center is proud to sponsor the first bi-annual “Arts in the Alley” event, presented by Chinatown Community Development Center on April 18, 2009 in Waverly Place, a beautiful alleyway with deep roots in Chinatown’s history. “Arts in the Alley” is a celebration of past and present achievements of our community to preserve neighborhood character, while giving visitors an
authentic experience of Chinese life and culture. This event will stimulate economic development for local merchants and provide a culturally enriching experience for residents and visitors. This event
will also showcase our alleyways as vibrant and functional open space for public venues.
