The equal partnership between the City of Ryde and local Chinese and Korean communities in Ryde in organising the celebrations is unique in Sydney.
In 2014, the local community is planning to stage even bigger celebrations, with the event favourite Cooking Competition on Sunday 9 February, and the flagship event on Saturday 15 February where a large number of perfomances will be held at Eastwood Mall.
A Lunar New Year subcommittee comprising local community leaders, business and residents has been meeting regularly to organise the 2014 celebrations.
Key event dates for the festival are:
Saturday 1 Feb– Lion Dance and Shop Visits to Eastwood Businesses
Sunday 9 Feb – Cooking Competition: Celebrities and Community Groups
Saturday 15 Feb – Main Event at Eastwood Plaza from 1030am -4.00pm
Businesses and individuals can sponsor elements of the festival or the entire festival from as little as $250 (Jade Sponsorship). This is a fantastic opportunity to get your business name in front of thousands of people at Ryde’s most vibrant multicultural events. Click here to download the sponsorship prospectus.
