Cultivating Good Chi at Northeast False Creek Block Party

Put on your sunglasses and join us for the City of Vancouver’s Northeast False Creek Block Party at the corner of Carrall Street and Keefer Street.

For the very first time, a selected collection of penjing (miniature landscapes) from the Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden will be on view outside the garden. A demonstration by penjing master Pin Lee will show how a simple miniature landscape can be made using affordable materials. We encourage you to join both Lee and tai chi practitioner Tony Hu to experience the ancient Chinese art of cultivating good chi.

Our tent is open from 11 am to 4 pm. The event is free of charge. No experience is needed for either penjing or tai chi demonstrations. Visitors will have the opportunity to win a family membership to the Garden. 

1–1:30 pm: Tai chi demonstration*
2:00 pm: Penjing demonstration
2:30–3:00: pm: Tai chi demonstration* 

*Please wear comfortable shoes and loose clothing if you want to practise tai chi with Tony. We also recommend wearing a hat for sun protection.
