Tickets on sale now for GNCA 2024 Chinese New Year Gala!

Tickets are now on sale for GNCA’s Chinese New Year Gala on Sunday, January 28 at Belmont University! Please note that tickets for the dinner and performance parts of the evening are sold separately.

IMPORTANT: ALL DINNER TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED ONLINE AND BY JANUARY 20. This is necessary to give Belmont sufficient time to prepare the right amount of food. If you attempt to buy tickets after the 20th or at the door, they will either be unavailable or extremely limited.

Show tickets will be available online before the event and at the door, as long as seating is available. Because seating is limited, we also strongly recommend ordering show tickets as soon as possible.

1984 – 2024: Celebrating 40 years of GNCA

Not only is 2024 the Year of the Dragon, it also marks our 40th year serving Middle Tennessee’s Chinese community! During this year’s show we will look back at GNCA’s growth through the years and recognize many of the founding members and leaders who have helped make our organization what it is today.

We look forward to having you join us in welcoming the new year!
