San Jose knows how to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Whether you call it Tet (Vietnamese), Chinese New Year (Chinese) or Seollal (Korean), our diverse Asian communities welcome the positive blessings of the New Year with festive food, family gatherings, musical performances and of course, red envelopes!
The 2024 Lunar New Year officially starts on Saturday, February 10th. This year marks the era of the Wood Dragon, the 5th animal in the 12-cycle Chinese Zodiac. Dragons symbolize power, nobility, honor, luck and success. Those who are born on Dragon years are known to have natural courage, tenacity, intelligence and come off enthusiastic and confident.
Set the tone for good eats in the new year with a memorable meal. iChina's opulent jade green and golden decor creates the best vibe for a prosperous year. Their new modern Cantonese menu offers a delicious celebration to welcome good fortune and health.
With multiple lunar new year celebrations happening throughout the City, book a hotel stay so you don't miss out!
