Chinese New Year celebrations have become an important part of Wellington’s cultural events calendar for Chinese and non-Chinese. The Festival provides a celebration that is distinctly kiwi while retaining the authenticity of an event that reflects the richness of Chinese culture and heritage.
Chinese New Year’s Day falls on 5 February 2019, and the coolest little capital in New Zealand will welcome in the Year of the Pig on the weekend of 9/10 February providing audiences with a total experience of the finest Chinese cuisine, crafts and cultural entertainment.
The Festival Fireworks Display on Wellington's Waterfront will be an explosion of sound and colour to welcome in the Year of the Earth Pig.
