Cabramatta Lunar New Year

Welcome the year of the Monkey

Lunar_New_Year_Photo___Advertising_photo___2015__52_Cabramatta Lunar New Year celebrations will take place on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 February 2016 from 9am to 4pm. Freedom Plaza, Cabramatta, will come to life with music and activities to welcome the year of the Monkey.

There is a great line up throughout both days on the Blue Star Air Conditioning Stage including the World’s Favourite Monkey, Curious George, LIVE as he leaps out of his books onto the stage. Performances will take place at 1pm and 3pm and you can meet Curious George at 2pm when he will pose for photos, give hugs and create a little bit of mischief.

The fun continues on Saturday at 2:40pm and Sunday at 12:30pm on The Blue Star Air Conditioning Stage with the popular food competitions brought to you by Cabramatta Bowls including the Children’s Chopstick Challenge and single handed Prawn Peeling competitions for your chance to win a great prize.

For the first time in Cabramatta, don’t miss the educational and magnificent Free Flight Bird Show at 3.30pm Saturday and Sunday. Meet some of Australia’s most beautiful species of birds as they free fly across the audience at The Blue Star Air Conditioning Stage. You can also visit the Feathered Friends Native Birds display and get up close with native birds and reptiles.

Other entertainment includes an appearance of the God of Fortune, traditional lion dance, carnival games for all ages. Take a memorable family portrait with the monkey family cut out for a fun memento. The official ceremony will be held on Saturday at 11am and the blessing of the Cabramatta community for a prosperous new year will take place on Sunday at 10:30am.
