Volunteer: Night in Chinatown Festival and Parade

Volunteer with us

This year the Night in Chinatown is on January 14, 2023. Each year the City and County of Honolulu hosts “Night in Chinatown,” a free, family fun festival to celebrate the Lunar New Year, occurring January 22, 2023. Locals and tourists come to enjoy the daylong event which features an abundance of authentic cuisine, live performances and various craft vendors who spread out along the streets of Chinatown. In addition to the street festival, attendees can watch the Chinese New Year parade, filled with vibrant costumes and local participants.

The Chinese New Year Parade started at the State Capitol lawn with participants marching through Hotel Street, where they entered the Chinatown entrance that is guarded by two lions, and ended at River Street just before the second gate.

Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year, is one of the most important traditional Chinese holidays. The festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first month of the lunar calendar and the parade remains a popular local activity in Chinatown.
