art-chinese-new-yearOur diverse region gifts us a cultural kaleidoscope of offerings, and with Chinese tradition we get to celebrate New Year’s twice! Beyond China’s mainland, its Lunar New Year is observed in almost every Asian Pacific land from Taiwan to Thailand, the Philippines and many Chinatowns across the globe. The San Diego Chinese Center host their 33rd annual festival on 3rd Avenue and J Street downtown the 21st and 22nd while the 10th Vietnamese Tet Festival at Mira Mesa’s Community Park kicks-off the festivities one day earlier on Friday. The senses will undoubtedly orient you toward the food, dancers, games and carnival rides, and more. Be it the ram, sheep or goat that you hold dear, there will be plenty for you to do as the traditional Lunar New Year celebration lasts 15 days!
February 20th – 22nd
