The annual Chinese New Year festival at International Village would not be possible without the support of valuable sponsors from the community.
We began our annual Chinese New Year festival at International Village Mall in the year 2000, with the inaugural Year of the Dragon. This year, as we add the 19th notch to our belt, we are one of the Chinese New Year festivals in the Lower Mainland that can boast of such a long history in the community.
Located in the heart of downtown as well as adjacent to the historic Chinatown and between tourists attractions of Gastown and Yaletown, our location is also the start and end point for the famed Chinese New Year Parade that takes place on the first Sunday after Chinese New Year. It is one of the largest parades in Vancouver that attracts almost 100,000 spectators along the route on the last occasion.
With your support, we have been able to introduce and celebrate the most important heritage festival of Asian culture in North America for almost two decades. Join us to commemorate this historic moment, offer a hand in supporting Canada’s cultural mosaic, and become a sponsor of the largest and longest-standing Chinese New Year festivals in Canada.
