Celebration of Chinese New Year of the Rooster at International Village marks the start of the Chinese lunar calendar, bringing traditional Chinese Spring Festival (春節 is another name for the CNY period of festivities) festivities and rituals to the community of Vancouver.
There are vendor and exhibition booths on both the main and upper levels of the mall showcasing festive Chinese New Year goods, souvenirs, culinary delights and gift wares, multicultural performances live on stage, lucky draws for prizes, and much more!
Four days of events start off with our popular Opening Ceremony celebrations, featuring the traditional Chinese ceremonial eye-dotting ritual and lion dance to welcome the New Year, attended by officials from multiple levels of government, consulates, and local celebrities.
Days of festive fun lead up to the renowned annual cultural extravaganza, Chinatown’s iconic Chinese New Year Parade, featuring over 4,000 participating performers and attracting 100,000 spectators all lining the streets of Chinatown to watch, rain or shine!
