About Us

Dublin Lunar New Year is a programme of the City Arts Office, part of the Culture, Community & Recreation Department of Dublin City Council (Chief Executive Owen P. Keegan, Assistant Chief Executive Richard Shakespeare). The work of the Arts Office is made possible by the support of the Lord Mayor of Dublin and the members of Dublin City Council.

Our Mission

To celebrate, promote and deepen the understanding of the East Asian-Irish relationship by presenting an annual festival of arts, culture and exchange that brings traditional and contemporary ideas together in an innovative and exciting way.

With its renaming in 2021, Dublin Lunar New Year strives to broaden and grow its engagement with all communities that celebrate the Lunar New Year which include China, Vietnam, South Korea, North Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei.

The festival is looking forward to building and diversifying its programming content for many years to come.
