Your group or performance must celebrate the Lunar New Year, one of the cultures that observe the Lunar New Year or the Year of the Tiger.

Opportunities are available for different types of performances either on a stage or as a roving performance.

Sydney Lunar Festival 2022 takes place from 29 January to 13 February 2022.

Lodge your expression of interest now. 

Applications close on Monday 29 November 2021, 11am Sydney time.
