Chicago Chinese New Year Parade 2020

About this Event

"Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all!

This year's Chinatown Parade in Chicago's Chinatown is just around the corner!

You are cordially invited to try some noodles and Cantonese cuisine prior to the start of the parade to ensure you save your spot and to watch the parade at 1p.

Chinese New Year falls on January 25, 2020 (Year of the Rat, 4718), and the Lunar New Year parade will be held on Sunday, February 2, 2020. The parade will begin at 1:00 p.m. at 24th Street and Wentworth Avenue. The procession will head north up Wentworth to Cermak Road and feature marching bands, colorful floats, traditional lion dances and a special appearance by Ronald McDonald.

Seven Treasures is the restaurant we met at last year prior to watching the parade and we will have tables in the back for a meet and greet. Then just before 1p, we will secure a spot on the sidewalk and hope to capture photos as we celebrate with our families and friends.

Taking public transportation would be a great idea on this day as it does get crowded and parking may be limited.

Keep an eye out for more details on our Chicagoland and Illinois Facebook Groups. This is a great event for the whole family! Ee can plan to meet at the restaurant at 11a to eat and meet and greet!
