Chinese New Year in the Desert (February 15–17, 2023)

The main celebration in Las Vegar is called Chinese New Year in the Desert. It spans three days, packed with dozens of themed events, many of which are free. Festivities take place throughout the city, including such venues as Downtown Las Vegas, Downtown Container Park, Villa Azur, Taverna Costera, and Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Spring Festival Parade (February 17, 2024)

A dragon parade and carnival procession must be the city's favorite tradition, marking CNY. Las Vegas Spring Festival Parade weaves its way through Fremont Street from 11 am to 12 pm.

Both the parade and after party are free and open to the public.
