Lunar New Year Festival

Dragon Boat Victoria, City of Melbourne and CNY United present Lunar New Year Dragon Boat Festival at Victoria Harbour, Docklands on Sunday 25 February 2024. 

Starting the day with a unique eye dotting ceremony to awaken the dragons and the blessing of the boats and water to ensure safe racing, the festival is a blend of tradition and heart-stopping action as the spectacular dragon boats race along Victoria Harbour to the beat of the drums.
