Welcome in the year of the rooster at Happy Valley Racecourse!

Head down to Happy Valley Racecourse on January 25 and February 2 for fun CNY festivities and more midweek fun at the races


Kick off Chinese New Year with a whole day of festive fun in Happy Valley Racecourse’s Happy Wednesday CNY Rooster. On January 25th and again on February 2nd come with friends and family to celebrate the Year of the Rooster in true Chinese New Year spirit.

Enjoy vibrant lion dance performances, special photo backdrops and mouth-watering arrays of food. Take a look out for the stuffed chicken wings and the three-ways chicken skewers sold in the trackside, along with dozens more CNY treats to discover. Don’t forget to take part in the New Year Treasure Pot, a treasure-hunt with grand prizes that include two round-trip tickets to Korea, and a pure gold rooster. Yes, you’ve heard right ─ a pure gold rooster. With live music from resident band Carnivale, and the merrymaking of beer and festivity, there will be tons of things for you to enjoy. You can also get your very own lucky portrait drawn as well as your fortune told by an auspicious fortune teller who will decode your luck from coins that you shake out of the turtle-shaped fortune shaker.

So head on down to Happy Valley Racecourse to start off the Chinese New Year with a big bang.
