Adelaide’s population comprises a wonderful mix of people from a range of international cultures. Along with the wider community, BankSA values their contribution in a range of areas including business, arts and culture. In February BankSA is proud to help bring two popular and very different cultural events to the city the Chinese Lunar New Year and the Italian Carnevale Festival. Read on for details….
CELEBRATE NEW YEAR – AGAIN
Head to Chinatown in the Adelaide Central Market precinct on Saturday, February 1 and celebrate New Year – again.
Chinese Lunar New Year falls on February 1 and with the help of BankSA sponsorship, this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than ever. Last year the event entertained more than 20,000 visitors and this year, from 4pm, the line-up includes more than 30 performers, Lion Dances, music, more than 60 stalls.
With Adelaide City Council Partnership, Chinatown Adelaide’s massive Street Restaurant is back, so make sure you reserve a table for the best seats to enjoy all the dance, colour, movement and noise that creates the marvellous Lunar New Year festival.
As part of the Chinatown Adelaide Lunar New Year 2014 Street Party, Gouger St will be closed and filled with stalls and tables to allow guests and festival goers to participate in a mass outdoor dining spectacle which starts at 6pm.
Bring in the Year of the Horse with a lucky table seating eight people. You will be able to sample food from any Gouger Street restaurant with several venues preparing dishes especially, so make sure you reserve a table. This is a fantastic way to spend the evening as the street lights up with cultural decorations, lanterns and performances.
So head down and soak up all the fun and atmosphere.
