2018 Chinese New Year Flower Fair | 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.
2018 Chinese New Year Flower Fair
– Saturday, February 10, 2018 | 10 am to 8 pm
– Sunday, February 11, 2018 | 9 am to 6 pm
Chinatown, San Francisco
– Grant Avenue from Clay to Broadway; Washington, Jackson & Pacific between Stockton & Kearny
Oranges, tangerines, flowers, plants, and a variety of auspicious foods are just a few of the many new year items for sale at the Flower Market Fair. Oranges and tangerines are symbols of abundant happiness. Tangerines with leaves intact assure that one’s relationship with another remains secure. For newlyweds, this represents the branching of the couple into a family with many children. Every traditional Chinese household should have live blooming plants to symbolize rebirth and new growth.
Kids can enjoy the Flower Fair as well. The Children’s Area features a petting zoo, photo area, and other fun activities. Traditional Chinese entertainment such as Chinese Opera and lion dancing will be performed on stage both days.
Please note, this is a non-smoking event.
