Dublin Chinese New Year Festival 2018

By BzBarlow 05 Feb 2018

Friday 16th February marks the start of the Chinese New Year. The traditional Chinese holiday celebrated at the turn of the lunisolar Chinese calendar!

The Dublin Chinese New Year Festival returns with 2 weeks of events, films, talks, music and dance taking place across the city. Themed around the Year of the Dog, it aims to broaden our understanding of Chinese culture and celebrate our Sino-Irish relationships too.
