The biggest Lunar New Year celebrations outside of Asia, Sydney Lunar Festival is produced by the City of Sydney and celebrates the city’s cultural diversity!

Celebrate Lunar New Year at more than 100 events – talks, tours and workshops, exhibitions, live performances, festive feasting, shopping, larger than life Lunar Lanterns and loads of family fun!

It all begins with the Lunar Lanes street party at Haymarket on Lunar New Years Day.

Find your zodiac among 12 spectacular Lunar Lanterns at Circular Quay foreshore featuring a massive tower of nine gold metallic rat robots..

Cheer on thousands of paddlers as they churn the waters of Cockle Bay in the southern hemisphere’s biggest Dragon Boat races.

Catch lion dances every day of the festival including LED lion or dragon dances under the glow of Lunar Lanterns. With thunderous drumming these flamboyant performers sweep through the festivities.

Green Square celebrations include a lion dancing workshop for kids while all day family fun at Sydney Lunar New Year Fair in Belmore Park includes a lunar spectacular show.

Lunar Feasts bring the flavours of Asia to Sydney’s best bars and restaurants including Thai Town where you can WIN a holiday to Thailand!
