Year of the Dog
Chinese New Year 2018 The Year of the Dog Melbourne Regional Victoria

2018 is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese Lunar Calendar and the City of Melbourne is getting ready to celebrate! From February 15th-25th, Melbourne will be celebrating its third annual Chinese New Year Melbourne Festival.

Drums and dragons will welcome in the New Year, firecrackers and fireworks will light up the sky and Melbourne will, once again, showcase itself as the city that does events best. There will be all kinds of events throughout the 10 days of the festival and besides Melbourne, Point Cook, Ballarat, Bendigo, and Ararat will have their own celebrations in regional Victoria. Concerts, dancers, competitions and even an underwater dragon dance performance at Sea Life Melbourne will delight grown-ups and children alike.

Along the Crown Riverwalk, there will be Fire Dragon Shows beginning every 30 minutes 8pm-12am daily (starting on February 12th). If you get hungry the Hawker's Bazaar will curb your hunger as you enjoy all the festivities in that part of Melbourne CBD. Inside Crown Towers, you can see the Zodiac Spectacular with all the signs of the Chinese Zodiac lit up brilliantly.
