  • Festivals
  • San Marino

What better place to celebrate the Lunar New Year than the Huntington Library’s beautiful Chinese gardens? Usher in the Year of the Rabbit with lion dancers, mask-changing performances, martial arts demonstrations and Chinese music during this two-day event. Look out for some sweet and savory treats just for the occasion (from shumai to yuzu sorbet) at just about all of the museum’s dining spots.

  • Things to do
  • Anaheim

What better spot to mark the Lunar New Year than “the happiest place on earth”? Disney California Adventure commemorates the Year of the Rabbit with a month of multicultural celebrations. Kids can look forward to photo ops and parade processions with Mulan, Mushu, Raya, Tigger and Mickey and Minnie Mouse, while adults will find a tasty reprieve with treats from China, Korea and Vietnam—available both à la carte and with a six-item “Sip and Savor Pass.” Stick around into the evening for a Lunar New Year-themed prelude to “World of Color.”
