Chinese New Year Festival

Friday 27th of January to Sunday 5th of February
Over ten big days, Perth will celebrate Chinese New Year (#WACNY2017), the Year of the Fire Rooster, with the sights, sounds and tastes of Asia. The spectacular festival will feature a range of colourful and unique daytime and evening events spanning across four zones from the hub at Elizabeth Quay as well as Northbridge, Forrest Place and Brookfield Place.



Ancient customs will meet modern innovation at Elizabeth Quay, the primary hub, where the Perth riverfront will be illuminated by 12 giant inflatable Zodiac lanterns featuring a six-metre Golden Rooster. To mark the Year of the Rooster, visitors can engage with a vibrant interactive lantern wall display that changes colour and formation at a touch, or marvel at exciting displays of traditional lion dancing, music and tai chi.

Learn the secrets of Chinese cuisine with a variety of chef cooking demonstrations and indulge your taste buds at the Asian Street Food Market. The hub will also feature the #WACNY2017 Photographic Exhibition Kiss the Sun, Marry the Moon, a collection of vintage black and white portraits of prominent Chinese migrants and contemporary portraits of local community members.

Other festival highlights include a Chinese Fashion and Design Exhibition at Brookfield Place and the Chung Wah Associationís Chinese New Year Fair in Northbridge.
