The Cairns Chinese New year Festival is a time of great joy and excitment when the city comes alive with red lanterns,  performing lions and drogons , loud drummiog and music and fireworks.

The Festival is celebrated over a 15 days and is an opportunity for the  region to share and celebrate north Queensland’s rich Chinese history and culture and acknowledge  the contributions of Chinese migrants and their descendants.

Highlights include the spectacular Chinese New Year lion and dragon performances at Cairns Lagoon Plaza and the Lantern Festival, which is held at the end of the 15 day celebration.

The Festival is  brought to you by the Cairns and District Chinese Assocaition  Inc and is  proudly supported by the Queensland Government through Multicultural Affairs Qld,  Cairns Regional Council and a number of local Cairns businesses and media groups.
