2019 Lunar New Year Festival

The seventh Lunar New Year Festival organised by the Chinese Community Association of Tasmania celebrated the Year of the Pig today on Parliament Lawns in Salamanca. This family event has grown bigger and better every year and includes stalls selling food from China and it’s neighbours, entertainment, activities for the children, information stalls, and the dragon dance!

Steamed Beef Bun $5 from Deep End Farm in Geeveston, rich meat enveloped in a pillowy soft exterior. They rear the cattle themselves and make some very tasty dishes, another festival favourite
