Dragon Dance Parade

A Treasured Cultural Tradition

The Lunar New Year Dragon Dance Parade and Celebration is organized in collaboration with the Oregon Historical Society and numerous community partners. The festivities include lion dancers, drummers, and a 150-foot dragon to lead the parade from the Portland Chinatown Museum, through the China Gate and downtown Portland on SW Third Avenue, and up to the Oregon Historical Society for a joyous conclusion.

This beloved community gathering has been made possible in part to the generous support of past and present sponsors, including:
