Lunar New Year is a celebration of the arrival of spring and the beginning of a new year on the lunisolar calendar. The Lunar New Year is one of the most important celebrations of the year in East and Southeast Asian cultures, including Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean communities - among others.

While the official dates encompassing the holiday vary by culture, universally it is the time of the year to reunite with immediate and extended family and observe age-old traditions.

Oakland is proud to be home to these diverse communities and share in their celebrations. Within each neighborhood, people are planning experiences that pay homage to their rich heritage and honor their beautiful culture.  Here is a list of not-to-miss Lunar New Year festivities, taking place in The Town.
