25th Annual New York City Lunar New Year Parade & Festival

In years past, a half-million spectators have lined the streets of Chinatown for this colorful pan-Asian procession, which includes Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Malaysian, and even Hispanic floats and cultural performances. 

The Lunar New Year parade kicks off at Canal and Mott Streets, heads to Chatham Square, turns onto East Broadway toward the Manhattan Bridge, completing on Eldridge and Forsyth Streets towards Grand Street next to Sara D. Roosevelt Park.

Arrive early along the route to claim a good spot.

Please note: this year's Lunar New Year Firecracker Ceremony and Cultural Festival is held on January 22.
