You’re invited to join the exciting festivities to celebrate the new year by being part of a Lunar New Year Parade or hosting a stall at the Golden Market.

You can build a float, dance or display your cultural performance at the Lunar Parade, or sell your traditional food and wares at the Golden Market.

The inaugural Lunar New Year Twilight Parade on February 16, 2019 will showcase the exciting fanfare of a traditional street parade.

Beginning at Chatswood Interchange, moving through Chatswood Mall and Victoria Avenue, Chatswood will come alive with a celebration of lion dances, drummers and traditional dancers. And you’re invited to be part of it!

Community and friendship groups can register to be part of the parade, build a float, showcase your traditional talents and costumes and be part of this wonderful experience. If you’re a business, it’s your opportunity to create a float and promote yourself to potential customers from across the North Shore.

We also invite you to share your traditional food, clothes or wares and become one of 35 stallholders selling food, decorations, toys, flowers and other items at our Golden Market.

The Chatswood Mall will spring to life for the Golden Market with lanterns, traditional entertainment, calligraphy and musical performances from January 29- February 8, 2019.
