Dandenong Market will celebrate the Lunar New Year with dragon and lion dancing, Chinese drumming and Taekwondo.
It will welcome the Year of the Dog with a festival from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 25 February.
There’ll be a pop-up food bazaar with 16 street food vendors cooking up the flavours of China, Vietnam, Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Nepal.
On the menu will be Korean-style hoppa pancakes, Thai pineapple fried rice khaw pad saporod, and Cambodian street barbecue meats.
Festival-goers can also try Korean fried chicken, modern Malaysian cuisine, and twisted potatoes.
Live entertainment will include a flying dragon spanning more than 20 metres.
Dandenong Market general manager Jennifer Hibbs said the Lunar New Year Festival was one of the most colourful and well-attended festivals of the year.
“Celebrating important cultural events like Lunar New Year Festival is the essence of Dandenong Market being the most multicultural market in Melbourne,” she said.
Entry and parking is free for this event.
