Chinese New Year in San Francisco
When it comes to American cities, San Francisco has one of the most vibrant and well-known Chinatown areas in the country. Entering underneath the ornate arches is like walking into a completely different world, and the smells, the sounds, the architecture surrounding you feels unlike anything else you have ever experienced. Little wonder then that San Francisco’s Chinatown is the place to be in February, the month of the Chinese New Year. Even though the Chinese New Year technically occurs on February 19th this year, the entire month will be riddled with parties, festivals, dances, and general revelry. So that you don’t become too overwhelmed with the options before you, we have complied a list of top Chinatown events and where they are located. Have a great New Year!
