Join us Sunday, February 11th for the Vancouver Chinatown Spring Parade

According to the Chinese calendar, every year is associated with one of the 12 sign animals from the Chinese zodiac. This year, 2024, is the Year of the Dragon - a powerful sign linked with authority, strength, and good fortune. Dragons are unique because they are the only mythical animal in the Chinese zodiac. Those born in the Year of the Dragon are known for their leadership, intelligence, and intensity.

Celebrate the Year of the Dragon!

Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year,is a time for revival, renewal, and rejuvenation (including eating yummy foodassociated with good fortune) in many Asian communities around the world. Thisyear, the Lunar New Year celebration begins on February 10th and lasts for up to 15 days.

Originally an agricultural holiday,Lunar New Year commemorates the end of winter and the beginning of spring,which is why it is also known as the “Spring Festival.”  Below are our celebration events schedule.
