Events Description

In year 2020, the first day of the Lunar New Year will fall on January 25th. To highlight the fifteen-day celebrations and in welcoming the year of the Rat, Toronto Chinatown BIA will spearhead the celebrations with an opening ceremony in Dragon City Mall followed by a magnificent lantern exhibition, and a lineup of interactive games and performances to showcase the rich heritage of Asian traditions during the 2020 Lunar New Year Celebrations.

As per traditions, the Lantern Festival will come to mark the last day of the fifteen-day Lunar New Year celebrations where families come together and light up different colours and shapes of lanterns. Lanterns are iconic and have transcended time through generations in Asian culture. During the fifteen-day celebrations, temporary installations of lanterns will come to life in different shapes and colours will illuminate the Dragon City Mall at the heart of Chinatown.

Join us at one or more of our free lantern workshops hosted by Toronto Chinatown BIA, STEPS Initiative , Lead Artist PUFF Paddy, and OCAD University to meet with neighbours, learn new skills and contribute to the Community Lantern Installation at Dragon City Mall, part of Toronto Chinatown’s 2020 Lunar New Year celebration.
