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 Day Street Parade(external link) is a crowd favourite and the only community run parade in Wellington, where the city streets will be filled with a fabulous display of colour and celebration.
