About Lunar New Year
The Creative Island Partnership is proud to present the second Lunar New Year Festival.
Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year and Spring Festival, is celebrated in East-Asian communities around the world.
In 2024, Lunar New Year takes place on 10 February, with the festival lasting until 24 February.
This cultural festival is traditionally an opportunity to:
- celebrate family and prosperity
- share hopes for the year ahead
- enter into the new year with positivity and joy
This New Year will bring the Year of the Dragon, 1 of 12 cyclical zodiac animals.
The Year of the Dragon symbolises prosperity, luck, hope and opportunity.
