connecticut’s biggest lunar new year celebration

Lunarfest 2019: Year of the Pig

Lunarfest is a celebration of the Lunar New Year and Chinese culture, offering arts and cultural programs for adults and children throughout the city of New Haven and at Yale. Special events are programmed in January and February, but save the date for the big day on Saturday, February 16, 2019, which kicks off with a parade at 10:00AM down Whitney Avenue and Audubon Street (between Grove and Trumbull Street). Then head indoors to visit many or all of our venues with special activities and programs featuring food, art, music, literature, and dance.
