Auckland Chinese Community Centre Inc has been organising an annual Chinese New Year celebration for more than 20 years. The Festival has grown in popularity over these years, and has now become a highlight of the Auckland summer events calendar with attendance by 100,000 persons or more.
The festival is a popular event for businesses and stall holders too. "Just wanted to say thanks so much for helping us out with the competition,” says Trudy Kirkbeck of NZ Post. “Our products flew out the door! We are looking forward to attending next year’s event.”
