Lunar New Year Festival & Parade
Gung Hay Fat Choy! The date of the Lunar New Year changes every year, but the excitement remains the same. The dragon-snapping, firecracker-cracking San Francisco parade and festival roars back after a year’s absence to celebrate the Year of the Tiger with a month of events, including a street fair, Miss Chinatown pageant, basketball jamboree and more.
Black History Month
MoAD, SF Jazz and more have yearly ways to celebrate — last year they united to put on a concert with Martin Luther McCoy. The San Francisco Public Library also holds numerous events every year to celebrate Black history.
