Lunar New Year Festival 2024

Council will welcome in the Year of the Dragon as part of our Lunar New Year Festival on Saturday 3 February 2024.

The year of the Dragon is a significant occasion in the Georges River Local Government Area. Georgie the Dragon featured in our logo, references the legend of Saint George, representing both our connection with the wider St George area and Council's aim to be a positive leader for change.

Join us on Forest Road, Hurstville to enjoy a range of food and market stalls and roving performances or head over to Hurstville Plaza to view the amazing entertainment on stage. 

The stage performances will commence at 2.00pm followed by the official opening ceremony at 3.00pm. Community performances will then resume on stage to entertain the audience until 9.00pm.
