2017 Chinese New Year Parade: Floats, Acrobatics & Firecrackers | SF

Saturday, February 11, 2017 - 5:15 pm to 8:00 pm | Cost: FREE
Chinatown | Kearny & Sutter, San Francisco, CA



Named one of the world’s top ten parades, the Chinese New Year Parade in San Francisco is the largest celebration of its kind outside of Asia.

Typically over 100 groups will participate in the parade and many of the floats and specialty groups will be featuring the theme of this year’s Chinese zodiac sign.

2017 Chinese New Year Parade
Saturday, February 11, 2017 | 5:15-8 pm
Chinatown, San Francisco
FREE standing room (bleacher seats are for purchase)

Nowhere in the world will you see a lunar new year parade with more gorgeous floats, elaborate costumes, ferocious lions, exploding firecrackers, and of course the newly crowned Miss Chinatown U.S.A. and her court.

A crowd favorite is the spectacular 268′ Golden Dragon (“Gum Lung”). It takes a team of over 100 men and women from the martial arts group, White Crane to carry this dragon throughout the streets of San Francisco.

The parade starts on Market, goes up Geary, down Post and ends on Kearny at Columbus.
