Our festival to welcome the Year of the Monkey is being held in Halls 3 & 4 of the ASB Showgrounds, 217 Greenlane West, Auckland 1023 on Saturday, 23 January 2016 between 9.30am and 4.00pm.

Auckland Chinese Community Centre Inc has been organising an annual Chinese New Year celebration for nearly 30 years. The Festival has grown in popularity over these years, and has now become a highlight of the Auckland summer events calendar with attendance by nearly 30,000 persons.

Our 2016 Chinese New Year Festival & Market Day to welcome the Year of the Monkey will feature the following activities:-
- Grand Opening at 10.00am with 11 person Dragon Dance
- Over 200 specialist stalls selling traditional & exotic Chinese hot delicacies, Chinese New Year
foodstuffs, Chinese traditional arts & crafts, & promoting advisory services
- Indoor entertainment programme of Chinese acrobats, cultural songs, dances & musical items
- Outdoor entertainment programme of martial arts, tai chi and Chinese pop singers
- Other entertainment and games & rides for children

We have an exciting new partnership with IHeart Radio which will provide extensive promotion of our event on Newstalk ZB, Coast & the Hits radio stations in addition to our normal Chinese NZ TV33 digital freeview advertising and Chinese & mainstream media promotion. Therefore, we are anticipating an even larger public attendance at this prestigious event, which has traditionally been the biggest celebration of Chinese New Year in the Auckland central region.

This is a free event and is eagerly anticipated by many thousands of recent migrants from China and other parts of Asia because they can again experience the sights, sounds, smells and pageantry of a traditional Chinese New Year celebration which they enjoyed each year in their previous home country.
The local mainstream Kiwis and NZ born Chinese also enjoy the event because of the great entertainment both indoor and outdoor, the exotic variety of Asian food available and the wide range of goods and services displayed in the market area.

Applications are now open for both outdoor and indoor stallholders and details are available on our website.
