The 115th Annual Golden Dragon Parade and Chinese New Year Festival. Cheer on the spectacular floats, decked-out cars, dancers and bands as they parade down the heart of Chinatown with Grand Marshal Mayor Eric Garcetti.
The Chinese New Year Festival gets underway following the parade with cultural performances, children's activities and hands-on cultural workshops. Taste a bite of Chinatown with traditional Chinese cuisine offered at many Chinatown restaurants, or street food and non-traditional dishes offered by some of LA's hottest gourmet food trucks. There will also be a Craft Beer Garden curated by Eagle Rock Brewery featuring local breweries.
New for this year are two satellite festival locations; Downtown Flea at 727 N. Hill St. and Spring Festival on Spring. DTFlea brings its massively popular flea and craft market to Chinatown in not one, but two locations! Both Central Plaza and 727 N. Hill will play host to Downtown’s coolest eclectic shopping place. Over on Spring St, 643 North and Caveman Vintage Music are teaming up to present a food and music experience unique to Chinatown! Spring Festival on Spring will run Saturday only 4pm to 10pm.
The Chinese New Year Festival takes place at Central and West Plaza, 943-951 N. Broadway on Saturday, 02/01/2014 12-8 p.m. and Sunday, 02/02/2014 12-5 p.m. The 115th Annual Golden Dragon Parade is on Saturday, 02/01/2014 1-3 p.m. DTFlea Market at 727 N. Hill and in Central Plaza will operate during all Festival Hours. Spring Festival on Spring is Saturday 02/01/2014 only, 4-10pm.
Always popular, the 2014 LA Chinatown Firecracker 5/10K Run/Walk follows on February 22 – 23, 2014. Visit firecracker10k.org for details. For information on the Chinese New Year Festival visit www.chinatownla.com or call 213-680-0243.
