2016 Chinese New Year Flower Fair: Saturday | Chinatown
Each year, the Chinese New Year Flower Fair takes place the weekend before the Lunar New Year holiday, so that families can enjoy the festive atmosphere and purchase their traditional holiday plants, flowers and fruits, while enjoying traditional Chinese dance, music, art and cultural displays.
2016 Chinese New Year Flower Fair
– Saturday, January 30, 2016 | 10 am to 8 pm
– Sunday, January 31, 2016 | 9 am to 6 pm
Chinatown, San Francisco
– Grant Avenue from Clay to Broadway
– Pacific Avenue from Kearny to Stockton
The Chinese New Year Flower Fair blossoms with an abundance of fresh auspicious flowers such as peach blossoms, narcissus, orchids, snap dragons and chrysanthemums and fruits such as oranges and tangerines. The Chinese firmly believe that without flowers, there would be no formation of any fruits. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to have flowers and floral decoration in the home for the New Year.
Kids can enjoy the Flower Fair as well. The Children’s Area features a petting zoo, photo area, and other fun activities. Throughout the two day fair, traditional Chinese dance and music will be performed on the main stage, along with an exciting array of entertainment from other Asian cultures.
