Dublin Chinese Lunar New Year (formerly known as the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival founded in 2008) 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, Hazel Chu, and the members of Dublin City Council.
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 this year, Dublin Chinese Lunar New Year strives to broaden and grow its engagement with all communities that celebrate the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival 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.
