Sydney Chinese New Year Festival Lion Dances

Event dates to be confirmed: January 2020


With plenty of drumming, flamboyance and skill, the Chinese Lion Dance teams bring Lunar New Year to Sydney’s Chinatown.

An integral part of City of Sydney’s Lunar New Year Festival, the Lion Dance is a Chinese tradition stretching back over 1,000 years and has featured in our Lunar New Year Festival since it began over 20 years ago.

The thunder of red fire crackers helps scare away the bad fortune of the previous year to ensure a happy and prosperous Year of the Rooster.

Catch a Lion Dance performance and traditional Chinese crackers brought to you by the City of Sydney.
