Celebrate the Year of the Rat

The Lunar New Year, or more commonly known as Chinese New Year, is a Chinese festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. This year, Lunar New Year commences on 25th January and is celebrated for 15 days till 8th February. According to the Chinese zodiac, it is the Year of the Rat. City of Adelaide once again is putting on a colourful celebration to honour the Chinese culture and tradition. Chinatown will be decorated with street banners and lanterns.

On Saturday 1st February from 12 pm to 9.30pm, there will be a street party on Moonta Street, off Gouger Street. There will be live music, market stalls, pop-up food stalls and of course, the iconic lion dance.
