Vancouver Chinatown Chinese New Year Parade

  • This location is shown only to members

The renowned Chinese New Year Parade will return in 2014. To be held on Sunday, February 2nd, 2014, this signature event of Vancouver's Chinatown will feature lion dances, cultural dance troupes, marching bands, martial arts performances and much more.

The Chinese New Year Parade celebrates the new year of the Chinese lunar calendar and is a fun-filled event for everyone to enjoy. As one of the three largest non-commercial annual parades in Vancouver, the Chinese New Year Parade features the largest assembly of traditional lion dance teams in Canada with dozens of colourful and energetic lions from the various local fraternal and martial arts organizations. Other highlights include multicultural dance troupes representing the diverse segments of our Canadian cultural heritage, the Vancouver Police Department Motorcycle Drill Team, marching bands and various community groups. The parade is expected to feature over sixty entries, bringing over 3,000 participants from various community and cultural groups.

Please wait at the International Village Starbucks.

Some of us may want to go for lunch after this, but it's impossible for the restaurants to save spots for a large group simply cos' there's too many people.

Dressing in Chinese costumes is optional and highly encouraged.
