Lunar New Year Fairs Returns to Hong Kong in 2023

Lunar New Year Fairs will return to Hong Kong for the first time in three years since 2020, according to a Jan. 13 government press release.

The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) has announced that the Lunar New Year fairs will be held in fifteen locations for the duration of a week between Jan. 16 and Jan. 22, with 922 stalls across the city selling Lunar New Year flowers and festival themed merchandise.

The Lunar New Year Fairs were cancelled in 2021 and 2022 due to COVID-19 measures. As many of anti-epidemic regulations have been pulled in December of 2022, this year’s Lunar New Year fairs will follow different pandemic measures.

“In response to the Government’s latest anti-epidemic measures, related arrangements at the LNY fairs have been adjusted. The measures, include that all participants must wear masks when entering or staying at the fair venues” said a government spokesperson.

The fairs will be in the following locations:

  • Victoria Park in Causeway Bay
  • Tat Tung Road Garden in Tung Chung
  • Fa Hui Park and Cheung Sha Wan in Sham Shui Po
  • Morse Park in Wong Tai Sin
  • Kwun Tong Recreation Ground in Kwun Tong
  • Shek Wu Hui Playground in North District
  • Man Yee Playground in Sai Kung
  • Po Hong Park in Tsueng Kwan O
  • Yuen Wo Playground in Sha Tin
  • Kwai Chung Sports Ground in Kwai Tsing
  • Tin Hau Temple Fung Shui Square in Tai Po
  • Sha Tsui Road Playground in Tsuen Wan
  • Tung Tau Industrial Area Playground in Yuen Long
  • Tin Hau Temple Plaza in Tuen Mun.

Visitors must follow specific crowd-control measures at three of the fairs, Victoria Park, Fa Hui Park, and Sha Tsui Roach Playground. A green-amber-red ticketing system will be used to measure an increase in foot fall, after which visitors can get a ticket via the free mobile app or in-person at the fair.
