Chinese New Year

28/01/2017 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Join us to celebrate the first day of the Lunar New Year - the Year of the Rooster!

Enjoy a range of delicious Chinese seafood dishes from one of the many restaurants and cafes at Sydney Fish Market, or come in to stock up on Sydney's best seafood for your own Chinese New Year feast at home.

To welcome in the New Year, traditional Lion Dancers will be parading through the carpark and arcade from 9.30am – 11am, entertaining visitors and visiting Market retail stores, bestowing luck and prosperity for the Year of the Rooster in return for a red envelope.

We’ll also be handing out traditional fortune cookies complete with fishy-pun fortunes, so keep an eye out!
