Sydney Chinese New Year Festival - Haymarket


• Saturday 06 February 2016 to Sunday 21 February 2016


Celebrate the Lunar New Year at City of Sydney's Chinese New Year Festival. This vibrant arts Festival has a program bursting with cultural events, markets, tours, exhibitions and entertainment, most of them free. Join in the celebrations for the Year of the Monkey by including your event in the 2016 Chinese New Year Festival.

Be part of the fun as the city's streets come alive with giant lunar lanterns and more. Don't miss the extremely popular Dragon Boat Races that see the spirit and power of the dragon come alive as 12 metre long boats, with up to 20 paddlers, battle it out to the beating of drums!

With over 80 events to choose from, visit the Sydney Chinese New Year web site to plan your Festival.
