The SD Lunar New Year Festival operates entirely through voluntary and unpaid efforts. The dozen coordinators, staff, and over 250 college and high school students dedicate countless hours to ensure residents receive the highest quality services they deserve.

Proceeds from the festival will be used in the revitalization efforts of the Little Saigon District of San Diego. In 2018, festival proceeds help paid for the soon-to-be installed cultural landmark freeway signs. In 2017, the festival proceeds help paid for the custom-built trashcans and cultural banners.

Here are the “must-dos” at SD Lunar New Year Festival, you don’t want to miss:
