In conjunction with two summer exhibitions, “Unearthed: Recent Archaeological Discoveries from Northern China” and “Through Shên-kan: Sterling Clark in China,” the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown is hosting its Chinese Street Festival Family Day from 11am-4pm on Sunday (June 24).

Have your fortune told by an oracle…
Learn to write your name in Chinese characters…
Watch — or join in — a dragon parade…
Climb the “Great Wall of China”…
Enjoy an exciting performance of the Peking opera “Monkey King Runs Amok in the Heavens”…
Meet a real-live water buffalo…

Family Day performances and art-making activities are free, as is admission to the Clark’s galleries. Most booth activities and services are free, although some have a nominal charge.
