It’s hard to schedule worldwide virtual events — so many circumstances can change unexpectedly! Therefore, please understand that this schedule may change in the weeks leading up to the event. The Spring Festival committee hopes to keep the changes minimal. Please keep visiting this site for the latest schedule updates — and thank you in advance for your understanding!
Also, please remember that Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday, March 14 — right during our festival! If you’re in the US, don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour. If you’re not in the US, please check for the correct event start times in your time zone.
