Sydneysiders are invited to celebrate Sydney’s rich Asian heritage at this year’s New Lunar Year festival. 

From 16 February to 4 March, sydneysiders can celebrate the Year of the Dog with number of experiences on offer to connect with canines across history and culture. 

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said, “the mix of traditional and contemporary dog-themed events in this year’s program will be a delight for Sydneysiders of all ages”.

“Our residents can celebrate the Year of the Dog by getting their pets microchipped free of charge, and collect a free engraved pet tag,” the Lord Mayor said. 

On 24 February at Joynton Park, residents and dogs will be able to enjoy a host of events and activities at the dog fair day, including dog agility demonstrations, vet talks and an advice booth, a doggie fashion show, treasure hunt, polaroid photobooth, Chinese folk dancing and live story performances.

Sydneysiders are also invited to attend the Guide Dog graduation ceremony on 17 February at First Fleet Park, where puppy pre-schoolers will graduate to Guide Dogs NSW/ACT’s latest recruits.

Moreover, animated dog lanterns will be on display at Sydney Opera House from 16 February until 25 February, while Sydneysiders can enjoy dog lanterns at Chinatown from 16 February. 

Further, residents can enjoy “Roving Dogs performance” at Circular Quay where costumed puppies will perform to your favourite dog tunes at the Lunar Spectacular Show at 7pm.

From 17 February, doggie sculptures, ceramics and portraits will be on exhibition at the Robin Gibson Gallery to celebrate Chinese New Year.
