Submitted by on January 10, 2012 – 10:37 pmNo Comment

Paris is a colorful, vibrant and diverse city, home to many different cultures from around the world. Major cultural events are celebrated by the ethnic communities, often in a spectacular way. There is a sizeable Chinese community in Paris – actually there are two “Chinatowns” in two separate locations of the city – and the Chinese New Year is celebrated with lively street festivals and parades. This year’s main event will take place in the 13th district, on Sunday, January 29, 2012.

The Year of the Dragon

Chinese New Year is the most important traditional Chinese festival. According to the Chinese calendar in 2012 the date of the New Year’s Day is the 23d January. The Year of the Rabbit ends and the Year of the Dragon begins. In China the festival lasts for 15 days, with the Lantern Festival closing the event.

Chinese New Year events are organized by the Chinese communities in collaboration with local councils, in the 13th arrondissement, Belleville and other Paris districts. There will be parades, dragon and lion dances, martial arts demonstration, traditional costumes and folk dances and other activities. You can also enjoy the richness of traditional Chinese culture at the Shen Yun Show, with spectacles held in Paris and across the country.
