Chinese New Year 2021

Join us as we celebrate the Year of the Ox with our motto ‘Strong as an Ox’. This year we will be bringing you all the colour, culture and spectacle of our traditional New Year Celebrations Virtually. So plan to join us for the first ever Online New Year Event 

Like many organisations we are doing things differently this year, and are moving our traditional Chinese New Year Celebrations online. You can watch live, or join the virtual audience via zoom as we bring the celebrations to you. So sign-up, sit back and sing along as we showcase the very best in local and Chinese talent. 

This is an exciting new development for the Chinese Welfare Association which has led and organised the New Year Celebration in Northern Ireland for many years. Over these years we have been privileged to host some of the best Chinese music, dance and theatre to Northern Ireland and have organised events in the City Hall and Titanic Building bringing the festival right to the very heart of Northern Ireland. This year we will be bringing it right to the heart of every home with the use of new technology. It is an amazing opportunity to give people who would otherwise never see our celebrations the opportunity to take part. It is also interesting to see this festival which is over 3,500 years old being hosted online in a new virtual format.

Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival, is the most important among the traditional Chinese festivals. The origin of the Chinese New Year festival can be traced back to about 3,500 years ago. If you are interested in the origins of the Festival, check out our History of Chinese New Year.

The links below will allow you to enjoy our event in a number of ways. And it will be shown live on YouTube and will be available to watch again after the event. The events starts a 2.00pm on Sunday 14 February 2021, and promised fun for all the family.
