Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year goes by many names: Chunjie or Spring Festival (Chinese), Tet (Vietnamese), Solnal (Korean) and Losar (Tibetan). It starts on the first new moon of the lunar calendar and ends during the first full moon,15 days later. This year is the Year of the Rat, with Lunar New Year runing from 25 January to 8 February 2020. The city will mark the occasion with colourful street banners, lanterns and the ever-popular lion dance performances.

The most significant festival on the Chinese lunar calendar, Lunar New Year is a time when tradition is honoured and practiced. In Adelaide, this important cultural event is recognised annually with celebrations showcasing time honoured rituals, music, art and food. City stores have come together to celebrate in style with a range of exclusive Lunar New Year offers, events and festive banquets.
