CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATIONS
This vibrant arts festival has a program bursting with cultural events, markets, tours, exhibitions and entertainment, most of them free.
Be part of the fun as the city’s streets come alive with giant lunar lanterns and more. Festival-goers can take a short stroll around Circular Quay to discover 12 larger-than-life animal signs of the Lunar Zodiac, which have been created using the latest technology blended with classical Chinese techniques.
Don’t miss the extremely popular Dragon Boat Races on 11 February that will 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 more than 80 events to choose from between now and 12 February 2017, visit the Sydney Chinese New Year website to plan your festival experience.
