RESCHEDULED DATE: Boston Chinatown Chinese New Year celebration and Parade

  • 21 Feb 2016
  • 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Chinatown Gate, Chinatown Boston

This is the rescheduled date!

Chinatown’s 2016 celebration for the Chinese New Year will take place in Chinatown in Boston.

This is the largest annual celebration in Boston's Chinatown! The event will feature troupes of colorful lion dancers, drums and cymbals. If you get cold, warm up inside Chinatown Main Street's Cultural Village from 12:00-3:00 PM at the China Trade Center (2 Bolyston Street) to enjoy free activities such as calligraphy, dough characters, origami, balloons, and more!

About the parade(s): Most of Chinatown becomes pedestrian-only during the event. After the parade's initial procession around the neighborhood, lion dances take place simultaneously in multiple locations, going from business to business up and down all the streets, smaller lanes, and alleys. Just follow the noise from the drums and firecrackers to find the action.  There is no one "best" place to view the parade.
