Argyle Lunar New Year Celebration

January 28, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Lunar New Year is a time for fresh starts—it’s about sweeping away the bad luck of the previous year to make room for the good luck of the new year. Since 1981, Uptown has celebrated the start of the new Lunar Year with celebrations, programming, food, and art.
Join Uptown United and 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman on Argyle Street in 2023 as Uptown continues its annual tradition going back 40+ years of celebrating the Lunar New Year! To welcome the Year of the Rabbit, we’ll be hosting the Lunar New Year Parade on Saturday January 28th (kick-off at 1:00pm sharp at Argyle & Winthrop) featuring 20+ local community groups, cultural institutions, dancers and performers! In addition, a number of local organizations are planning pop-ups with family-friendly activities that day between 12:00-4:00pm
REROUTE NOTICE: The parade is being rerouted this year due to CTA construction. The parade will kick-off at Argyle & Winthrop, head west on Argyle, north on Broadway, east on Winona, and south on Sheridan back to Argyle. The parade will NOT be proceeding down Ainslie this year.
