Chinese New Year is one of the most colorful celebrations and is also one of the most welcoming. If you wish to imbibe some of the glorious Chinese culture in the United States these cities play host to glorious celebrations.
1. Chicago, Illinois
The Chinatown neighborhood celebrated its 100th birthday just a few years ago, and it’s still going strong. With over 10,000 community members it lends itself to a formidable New Year’s celebration. In 2019, the annual celebration will be as spectacular as previous years with the Argyle Street Lunar New Year Parade on Saturday, February 9 and the Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade on Sunday, February 10 (complete with a dragon dance). The festivities will include special performances, cultural events including a special Symphony concert and Lantern Festival, and delicious goodies.
