Meeting House Square – Flagship event

Sunday 11th February at Meeting House Square from 12pm – 6pm

Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

As we celebrate the closing of this year’s Dublin Lunar New Year festival, Meeting House Square will be transformed by a mesmerizing all ages event that is not to be missed. 

Prepare to be awe-struck by our show-stopping new commission, The Journey of the Dragons, a collaborative project by international spectacle champion, Lisette Krol, and Vietnamese-Irish DJ, Lychee, who join our line up of incredible performers from the Chinese, Korean, Mongolian and Taiwanese communities. Say hello to the Year of the Dragon with a series of Cantonese Lion and Dragon performances from the legendary Flower City Dragon and Lion Dance Association, or release your inner Dragon with the students of the Sam Lee Academy who will demonstrate how to harness your inner chi with the slow and graceful movements of the late Sam Lee’s style of Tai Chi. 

Be inspired by a collaborative workshop with visual artist Jane Groves in which participants will work together to complete an epic dragon head sculpture, join artist Heather Gray and co-create a series of multi-cultural dragon illustrations or get your face painted with your very own zodiac animal. With everything from tasty bulgogi and traditional Filipino flavors, food traders Seoul Kitchen and Bahay are a must try! There is something for everyone to enjoy, from authentic cuisine and dazzling performers, to creative demonstrations and traditional Lunar New Year games. 

Dublin Lunar New Year’s flagship event at Meeting House Square will take place on Sunday, 11 February from 12pm-6pm. The event is free to attend. All ages welcome.
