Happy Lunar New Year Toronto 2021

Friday, Feb 12 begins the Year of the Ox as the Chinese New Year comes to town - no more Year of the Rat for us! 16 days of celebrations end with the Lantern Festival on the 26th. In Toronto you will have to settle for virtual celebrations as the Covid lockdown continues.

Toronto Chinatown's Youtube says "We are inviting you to celebrate this year’s Lunar New Year with us virtually. If you miss the lion dance and other popular LNY activities in Chinatown or if want to learn more about how our community celebrates the Lunar New Year, tune in to our live event!" The celebration goes live on Feb 13, 2021 at 7:30pm.

Chinatown bia is also putting on a multimedia public art program beginning Feb 12th. Yue Moon artists PUFF Daddy and Winnie Truong are exhibiting works in public for "an escape from the darkness and cold of winter."
