2024 LunarFest

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with 2024 LunarFest!

LunarFest is an annual festival that celebrates the Lunar New Year through arts and culture. Inviting the diverse communities of the Greater Toronto Area to share stories, we are creating new traditions that bring artistic expression and cultural understanding together. Always looking to Celebrate Like No Other, we continue to share the festive spirit of the Lunar New Year with those from all cultures and backgrounds.

2024 is the Year of the Dragon. Through arts and culture, we invite everyone to join us in building a community where everyone is Born to Be Free. We will be facilitating crafts workshops and storytelling sessions to welcome the new year.
