2019 is the year of the Earth Pig, which is predicted to be a lucky year. The Dublin Chinese New Year Festival has a packed programme of events so take a look and experience this fantastic culture here in Dublin.
Established in 2008, the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival (DCNYF) year-on-year celebrates, promotes and deepens the understanding of the Sino/Irish relationship. The 2019 programme celebrates The Year of the Pig and marks the 12th year of this internationally recognised festival.
Chinese New Year’s Day falls on Tuesday 5th of February 2019 and the festival plans to deliver a high profile cultural and celebratory programme to mark this significant date in the Chinese Calendar. Dublin will also continue to build on its twinning agreement with Beijing signed in 2011 and Dublin Airport Authority twinning with Beijing Airport established in 2013.
