Best of Boston

2022 Best Cultural Festival

Chinese New Year Parade and Cultural Village

There’s only one event that’ll entice us to spend the day outside in the middle of winter — and judging by the crowd that came out in the snow this past February to ring in the Year of the Tiger with the first lion-dance parade in two years(!), we’re not alone. The Cultural Village at the China Trade Center, meanwhile, always adds a layer of fun to the experience, with calligraphy, lantern-making, and more — and a layer of warmth, too.
