Year of the Dragon: Lunar New Year Festival 

When: Sat., Feb. 4, 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m. 2012
Price: free

While last year's Chinese (or Lunar) New Year recognized the rabbit, this year goes to the dragon, a creature that's arguably more visually striking than its fluffy, pouf-tailed predecessor. The Oakland Asian Cultural Center's (388 9th St., Ste. 290, Oakland) Lunar New Year Festival both celebrates and aspires to the grandeur of the majestic beast with an array of Asian dance, music, and martial arts performances, including appearances by Patty Chu's Chinese Folk Dance Troupe and Filipino mixed martial artists EskaboDaan. The festival on Saturday, Feb. 4, also features arts and crafts workshops, including Japanese paper-doll-making and Korean kite-building. 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m., free. or 510-637-0455
