Lunar New Year


New Year's Day is Friday 16 February, 2018

2018 is the year of the DOG

Melbourne loves to celebrate with festivals and events.

Melbourne holds a strong tradition with the Chinese community with festivities running over fifteen days. The traditional start to the festival is Chinese New Year's Eve for a dinner where all members of the family attend for a lavish meal, with celebrations culminating two weeks later with a Chinese lantern festival.
