On January 27, at Lunar Fest 2018, visitors in Downtown Riverside will be transported to the beauty of the magnificent Ancient Orient, beginning with a Spectacular Parade of Nations at 10 am, Opening ceremonies at 10:45 am, then Traditional Asian Music, Taiko Drums, Dance Performances, Art Displays and Day-Long Demonstration of Martial Arts, and a range of Asian Cultural displays of various kinds conducted by community and professional groups alike, throughout the day on four separate stages.

Make sure you visit the Children’s Village for FREE Arts and Crafts. Also check out the Health Expo hosted by local medical professionals, that brings the art of the Mind, Body and Spirit into ones well being.  Then enjoy the days events with authentic Asian foods of the Far East and try a variety of Teas at the Tea Pavilion to tantalize the pallet. We encourage you to dress the part of the festivities and wear your favorite Asian Attire along with the hundreds of traditional cultural garbs from all over Asia and South Pacific.

We will have the schedule of performances as we get closer to the festivities, so keep checking back.   And lastly, don’t miss the closing ceremony with our spectacular Fireworks Display ringing in the Lunar New Year of the Rooster, with a Bang!

Parking is Free, Admission is Free, and the Cultural Experience is Priceless.
