Perth Chinese New Year Fair 2015

Organised by the Chung Wah Association, the family-friendly festival attracts a crowd of more than 60,000 people each year to celebrate a new year and showcases a huge variety of cultural entertainment and food. Over 100 stalls will be present offering food, beverages, arts, crafts, services and a whole range of different products to reflect the wonderful diversity of Perth's Asian community. The Chinese New Year Fair aims to promote Chinese culture by sharing the joy and festivities together with the wider community.

Lion dances are a familiar colourful sight during Chinese New Year, and there is no shortage of both lion and dragon dances at the fair. Other attractions include games, rides, water slides, street performances and entertainment, cultural activities, market stalls and a multicultural concert lined up in the evening from 7pm to 9pm at the Northbridge Piazza.

Visitors can browse the various stalls on James Street and enjoy the activity area set up on Lake Street. It will be lined with fun-filled activities and attractions such as Cup and Saucer Ride, Clown Playport and Slide, Simulator Ride, Laughing Clowns Game, Lucky Numbers, Pluck a Duck Game and a Muppets Game. The closure of Nicks Lane will also see interactive multicultural stall activities for visitors to participate in.

The Northbridge Piazza will be transformed into a Kids Zone from 12pm and 4pmand will feature a variety of activities for the kids. A giant water slide installation will delight the little ones, along with activity stalls, face painting, balloons, clowns and much more. Street performances will occur at every half hour interval on James Street, including the lion and dragon dances, a Chinese ethnic costume parade, the WA police pipe band parade and a stage show from 12pm to 6pm at the front yard of the Chinatown in Roe Street.

There will be planned road closures for the Chinese New Year Fair, with James Street and Lake Street in Northbridge set to be closed off from traffic on the day of the fair. For further information, visit the event website and celebrate everything the Year of the Sheep has in store for you!
