In 2019 Vancouver celebrates Chinese New Year with the 46th annual Chinese New Year Parade in Chinatown on February 10th. It’s an impressive event!
Vancouver’s Chinese New Year’s parade happens in Chinatown from 11 am until about 1:30 pm. Get there early to find a place you can see the road, somewhere along Pender, Gore or Keefer near the entrance gate to Chinatown. Unless it’s raining and miserable, prepare yourself for the crowds – the throng of people is a cultural experience in itself.
