Chinese New Year Flower Fair Description

Chinatown in San Francisco is the first American Chinatown and the biggest Chinese community outside of Asia. Every year on a weekend in January, the massive Chinese community in San Francisco packs Grant Avenue and Pacific Avenue for the annual Chinese New Year Flower Fair. The fair brings out a crowd of about 400,000 people and features food, gifts, and live entertainment.

Held on the weekend before the Lunar New Year, the Chinese New Year Flower Fair gives San Francisco’s Chinese community the chance to pick up traditional flowers to help usher in the future. Visitors walk through aromatic stalls full of orchids, snapdragons, potted bamboo, and chrysanthemums. The Children’s Area offers kids the chance to explore Chinese culture while having fun with plenty of activities and even a petting zoo.

The Chinese New Year Flower Fair is free and all ages are welcome to prepare for the Lunar New Year with San Francisco’s Chinese community. After the Flower Fair, try traditional Chinese drinks and dishes at the bars and restaurants in San Francisco’s historic Chinatown.
