Chinese New Year

Barcelona welcomes the Year of the Rooster

Chinese New Year will be celebrated in the city on 4 February

It’s a celebration that moves more people than any other in the world and is marked in many countries around the globe due to the presence of migrants from the planet’s most populated state. Chinese New Year is set to fall on 28 January this year, though the celebrations in Barcelona will be held on 4 February.

Following tradition, the celebrations include a grand parade around the streets of Fort Pienc, the neighbourhood with the largest concentration of Chinese citizens in Barcelona. A large number of Chinese cultural associations and societies will be participating in the event.

The parade is set to begin at 11.30am at Parc de l’Estació del Nord and will end at Arc de Triomf. More than 30 entities and a thousand people will take part, accompanied by Chinese and Catalan dragons, music, human towers, giants and many other surprises. Once the parade has finished, the esplanade in Passeig de Lluís Companys will host a number of cultural and folklore performances from 12 noon to 2pm.
