Lunar New Year Celebrations

Lunar New Year was celebrated on Saturday 4 February at Gold Coast Chinatown, bringing thousands of people to the street of Southport.

The celebration was a free event featuring an Asian-infused street food market, live music and cultural entertainment, interactive workshops, screening of Kung Fu Panda 3, pop up laneway bar, and a spectacular fireworks display. This is the third year the City has hosted a Lunar New Year celebration – also commonly referred to as Chinese New Year.

Coast Chinatown is an integral part of the revitalisation of Southport as an international CBD for the Gold Coast. It is a place for the Gold Coast to celebrate its diversity through culture, design, people and food.

Events like Lunar New Year help attract ongoing interest to the Chinatown area from Asian restaurants and retailers, who want to establish themselves permanently in Southport.
