From Jan 31 to Feb 1, the "Joyful Dragon for a Happy Chinese New Year" events, as part of the "Happy Chinese New Year" cultural program, took place in San Francisco. A variety of cultural activities, including the Chinese New Year Reception at the Chinese Consulate General in San Francisco, Intangible Cultural Heritage Campus Outreach, and zodiac-themed flash-mob, conveyed the excitement of ushering in the Year of the Dragon across the ocean.

This cultural exchange event series was sponsored by the Beijing Municipal Culture and Tourism Bureau and organized by the Beijing Overseas Cultural Exchange Center.

The "Celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the Establishment of China-US Diplomatic Relations and the Chinese New Year" event was held on Jan 31 at the Chinese Consulate General in San Francisco. The event was attended by over 200 guests, including Zhang Jianmin, China's consul general in San Francisco, London Breed, San Francisco mayor, Fiona Ma, California state treasurer, and Jeffrey Greene, chairman of the Sino-American Aviation Heritage Foundation, as well as local dignitaries and representatives from major institutions.

On Feb 1 local time, Beijing's intangible cultural heritage inheritors made a visit to Convent & Stuart Hall Schools of the Sacred Heart San Francisco and Enlighten Chinese School. They guided hundreds of students ranging from elementary to high school to experience the charm of Chinese intangible cultural heritage.

These initiatives facilitated a greater understanding of Chinese zodiac culture among the American audience, fostering a deeper cultural exchange between China and the United States.
