Chinese New Year Lantern Festival 2019
Sydney’s biggest Chinese Community event is celebrating its 5th Anniversary with the most spectacular Chinese lantern display ever seen in Australia. Staged at Darling Harbour from February 13th to the 17th 2019, the Festival welcomes in the Chinese New Year of the Pig.
The 2019 Official Chinese New Year Lantern Festival features as its centrepiece a Great Wall of China lantern display which will span across Darling Harbour’s Tumbalong Park. At a total 30 metres in length, with an entrance gate that stands almost three stories in height, it will be one of the largest ever single Chinese lanterns constructed outside of China.
Performances of traditional Chinese dance, music, acrobatics and martial arts will once again feature prominently, with the biggest ever troupe of performers joining the 2019 festival. In all there will be 200 individual artists performing across multiple stages, with shows running from 12:00pm until 9:00pm.
Entry is FREE so come along and be part of Australia’s biggest celebration of Chinese food, lights, performance and culture!
