Join Melbourne's Chinese and Vietnamese communities for one of the biggest Lunar New Year celebrations in town

Victoria Street in Abbotsford is one of the most bustling Vietnamese hubs in Melbourne, known for its restaurants and grocers. Every year, the street throws a huge party for Lunar New Year – and everyone is invited.

From 11am until late, you can expect everything from carnival rides to Chinese opera, firecrackers to Chinese dragons winding down the street. Of course, there'll be plenty of tasty Chinese and Vietnamese food stalls, plus cooking demonstrations.
