Celebrate the Year of the Pig at this FREE community festival, which is a feast of colour, music and food.
The annual Chinese New Year celebration is the most important cultural festival for the Chinese community. It celebrates the coming of the New Year and has rituals, traditions and ceremonies designed to bring new luck and good fortune for the upcoming year.
The event is organised by the Monash Chinese Events Commitee in conjunction with Monash Council. It is a celebration of the traditional Chinese Lunar New Year and will include outdoor stalls of food and merchandise, entertainment and cultural activities.
Traditional Chinese lion and dragon dance performances at 12pm and 5pm are a highlight with the spectacular lion dance on poles delighting all ages.
Happy New Year
Monash Council is pleased to be a major supporter of the Chinese New Year and Lantern Festival. It’s great to have community events where people come together to have fun and celebrate each other’s cultures.
