Lunar New Year Celebrations

The City of Ryde is home to a large and vibrant Chinese and Korean community. In 2015 the City hosted an exciting and colourful event that was widely acknowledged as a big success with a crowd over 10,000 attending during the day.

The equal partnership between the City of Ryde and local Chinese and Korean communities in Ryde in organising the celebrations is unique in Sydney.

In 2016, the local community is planning to stage even bigger celebrations, with the event favourite Cooking Competition on Saturday 13 February, and the flagship event on Saturday 20 February where a large number of performances will be held at Eastwood Mall.

2016 will be the Year of the Monkey.
