Qingming Festival Lecture

Qingming Festival Lecture

Join us for a special presentation by Jennifer Fang, Ph.D., at two historic cemeteries. These events are designed to give visitors a range of options to learn more about Oregon’s Chinese history.

Learn about the cultural and historical connections of each cemetery to Oregon’s Chinese American community and the traditions of Qingming (Tomb Sweeping), a holiday honoring deceased ancestors and caring for graves.
