The adult performing group has been invited to perform at numerous major American and multicultural events nationally. The children’s performing group has been invited to participate at the International Children’s Art Festival in China. Xilin’s art academy has been instrumental in establishing new multicultural performances in the metropolitan Chicago land area.


Xilin’s art academy conducts the Xilin Lantern Festival, a major annual event that has become a cultural tradition in Naperville celebrating the Chinese culture through games, costumes, arts, crafts and performances. Xilin Lantern Festival has been running successfully for 11 years and counting. For more information about 2016 Lantern Festival, please contact us at 630.355.4322.


Xilin Association strives to engage the community at large with Chinese culture through cultural fairs and special events. Many of our cultural activities are focused on outreach to other ethnic communities to further enhance cross-cultural dialogue.

Xilin takes part in numerous cultural engagements throughout the year, including the Chicago Cultural Mile’s New Year Family Celebration. At events like these, people of all ages in the community get a chance to interact with Chinese culture in a fun and educational environment.
