Lunar New Year Community Celebrations

Ring in the Year of the Dog with us at all of our celebrations and events in Vancouver’s historic Chinatown! Take a photo with our dragon boat displays and learn about our Introduction to Dragon Boat programs and our Summer Youth Paddling Camps.

We’ll also be giving out lucky red envelopes that symbolize luck and health to everyone, young and old along the parade route and at our booth at International Village! Take a look inside your lucky red envelope for your chance to win prizes to get active in 2018, and tag our dragon boat float for even more chances to win great prizes.
