Our January mid-month event will be a photoshoot of the Chinese New Year Parade at Chinatown.
||Sunday January 22, 2023
||Meet at the Millennium Gate on Pender Street (between Shanghai Alley and Taylor Street). See below.
The parade will start at the Millennium Gate on Pender Street (between Shanghai Alley and Taylor Street). The procession featuring a wide array of cultural groups will wind its way east along Pender Street, then turn south onto Gore Street.
The colourful parade will then turn west onto Keefer Street and then disperses at the intersection of Keefer at Abbott. The entire event is estimated to take about two and a half hours.
Vancouver Chinatown Spring Festival Celebration is organized by a group of community organizations, including the Chinese Benevolent Association of Vancouver, Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver, Vancouver Chinatown Merchants Association, S.U.C.C.E.S.S., Chinese Freemasons Vancouver Branch and Shon Yee Benevolent Association of Canada.
The celebration will feature cultural dance troupes, marching bands, martial arts performances, and the largest assembly of traditional lion dance teams in Canada.
Maybe grab some local food after the parade.
