Dancing lions and other costumed people dance down Victoria Street in Richmond at the 2023 Victoria's Street Lunar Festival.

The Victoria Street Lunar Festival returns in 2024 by welcoming the Year of the Dragon.

Get into the festive spirit of Richmond’s Vietnamese heart, with local eateries offering an enticing selection of street food. Celebrate the Lunar New Year with music, food, firecrackers, lion dancing and more.

Home to some of Yarra’s favourite Vietnamese groceries and restaurants, Victoria Street truly comes to life during the Lunar Festival; one of the most popular Lunar New Year celebrations in Victoria. We invite everyone to visit Victoria Street and commemorate the start of the Lunar New Year with delicious food, and activities throughout the day.
