Penang CNY Celebration

Penang CNY Celebration

Penang CNY Cultural & Heritage Celebration is an annual event patronised by Penang State Government and Penang Clan Council in conjunction with Chinese New Year. In this year, a total number of 18 clan precincts will be opened for public to enter. This event started since year 1999. It takes place at George Town, Penang. George Town had been recognized as one of the UNESCO’s World Heritage Site.

This event would help to promote the festive atmosphere of Penang Chinese New Year, culture, traditional arts and the intangible moral heritage.

Theme of Event:
Real Gems of Traditional Heritage Travel from Generation to Generation

There will be a total of 18 clans and associations presenting their “gems” on the event day. The so-called “gems” include but not limited to their traditions, crafts, food and languages.

槟城庙会是槟州各姓氏宗祠联委会自1999向时任政府所倡仪的民间文化活动,由槟州政府主催,槟州各姓氏宗祠联委会为主办单位。乔治市古迹区18家宗祠会馆参与门户开放给大众。

我们希望通过活动,深入浅出的呈现方式,在热闹欢腾的节庆里,让民众有所感动与受敬也传承优秀的传统文化。

主题:
《一家传一宝,人人来接宝》

今次庙会一改过展示和介绍方式,以“一家传一宝,人人来接宝”概念,通过互动,让民众向这些宗祠和会馆“取宝”。所谓的宝,即是会馆和宗祠的传统文化,手艺,食谱和语言等。

参与的宗祠和会馆包括增龙会馆,中山会馆,台山宁阳会馆,武帝庙,伍氏家庙,李氏宗祠,陈氏宗祠,刘关张赵古城会,潮州会馆,南阳堂叶氏宗祠,邱公司 ,宝福社,世德堂谢公司,新会会馆,广东及汀州会馆,胡氏宗祠,梅氏家庙和黄氏宗祠,共18个宗祠会馆。
