Event description: 

Lunarfest is a celebration of the Lunar New Year and Chinese culture, offering arts and cultural programs for adults and children throughout the city of New Haven and at Yale. Lunarfest creates community bonds through schools, arts nonprofit, and business partnerships.

Programs begin in the fall each year and culminate in a series of performances and events celebrating Lunar New Year. Critical partners are Yale, the City of New Haven, Town Green, and the schools, arts nonprofits, and libraries that offer space to discover new cultures in the greater New Haven neighborhood.

This February 2021, we have free programs online featuring food, art, family activities, and wellness resources. Learn more and register for events at

Happy Year of the Ox! 牛年大吉!

Lunarfest is produced by the Yale-China Association to build understanding and bridge cultures through the arts.
