The center, along with MTSU’s Confucius Institute, is co-sponsoring the two-month series of festivities at various locations, which include musical concerts, art displays, calligraphy workshops and a dragon dance.

All events are free and open to the public.

“What I have had in mind (for the festival) is what is our center’s mission, which is to serve the university teaching, serve the local community and bring the best of Chinese arts to the community,” Han said.
