Enjoy a special Chinese New Year Dragon Dance & Parade presented by The Portland Chinatown History Foundation and the Oregon Historical Society. The celebration starts on NW Davis and 3rd Avenue with fireworks and lion dances, then continues with a parade through Chinatown and downtown featuring a 100-foot dragon and more lion dances!
PLEASE NOTE: The parade route leads through the Chinatown neighborhood surrounding the garden. The parade begins on NW Davis & NW 3rd Avenue at 11 a.m.
Chinese New Year lasts for 16 days, and each day is packed with things to see and do. Download the full calendar of events here to start planning your visit.
Traditional lantern viewings close out Chinese New Year festivities, when the garden glows with hanging red lanterns and the lake reflects the light of large illuminated lantern sculptures. A dragon procession and special performances are all a part of these special evenings.
