ChiChing Ming

Saturday, April 1, 2017, please return for updates.

CHSSC will host Ch’ing Ming (Chinese Memorial Day) Festival at the historic Chinese Memorial Shrine at Evergreen Cemetery. The Shrine stands at the center of what was once a 19th century Chinese cemetery. Built in 1888 by the people of Los Angeles’ Old Chinatown, the Shrine is considered the earliest extant Chinese structure in Los Angeles. Though few Chinese are still buried there, the site remains culturally and historically significant and has been designated Los Angeles Historic/Cultural Monument No. 486. It is owned and maintained by the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California. Please join us for this culturally rich event.​
