Lunar New Year

26 Feb 2022

26 February 2022
Kambri Precinct
4pm to 8pm
The Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival, is the most important festival in Chinese culture and takes place on the first day of the lunar calendar. The Lunar New Year is observed around East and Southeast Asia as a time of joy, remembrance and, most importantly, of connection with loved ones. Each year is associated with one of 12 animals with 2022 marking the year of the tiger, symbolising bravery, courage and strength.


To celebrate our diversity and the strong, valued bonds we share with our community, the University will host a Lunar New Year Celebration to be held from 4pm to 8pm on 26 February in our Kambri precinct.

The event will feature traditional Chinese instrumental performances, calligraphy, origami and paper-cutting demonstrations, customary games such as Mahjong and Chinese chess, martial arts demonstrations, a movie screening and cultural food stalls.

This event is open to the public – we hope you will join us as we celebrate the year of the tiger!

The ANU Lunar New Year Celebration is in partnership with the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the Commonwealth of Australia and the ACT Chinese Australian Association.

Please note the final program for performances (on stage) and workshops (in the interactive zone) will be released soon. Due to COVID19 safety protocols, attendee limits apply.
