St Albans Lunar Festival

January 6 @ 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

Lunar New Year Festival

The 22nd St Albans Lunar Festival will be held on Sunday, January 6 2019 from 10:00am to 10:00pm.

St Albans Lunar Festival is a popular event and kicks off a string of Lunar New Year celebrations in Melbourne.

The festival has a large variety of stalls, food, entertainment, community information, bands, rides, fireworks and dancing.

Join for the official opening including the traditional lion dance and the lighting of long-string firecrackers at 1:00pm. The St Albans Lunar Festival concludes with a fantastic fireworks display at 9:30pm.

The Lunar New Year is the biggest calendar event for Southeast Asian communities all over the world. The St Albans Business Group organises each year the St Albans Lunar New Year which is its flagship festival. It is the first Festival in each Calendar Year and kicks off a long series of other similar Festivals.

 The Festival is aimed to support the local community. As it is a South East Asian Festival it has many attendees from that region, but many other people enjoy the atmosphere, the food, the entertainment and the company.

The Festival attracts between 60,000-90,000 people annually.

 The St Albans Business Group (SABGAI) is a not-for-profit organisation representing the businesses in St Albans town centre. It has a strong multicultural flavour with representatives from South East Asia, India, Africa and European heritage.

 In 2019 the festival will be even more multicultural, diverse and vibrant. We have the following features:

  • An outstanding choice of Vietnamese cuisine and other food
  • A packed entertainment programme
  • Plenty of rides, games and activities
  • A very large Lunar New Year fireworks display
