“Kung Hei Fat Choy!” from the Bendigo Joss House Temple

Gather your family and join us at the Bendigo Joss House Temple on Sunday 24 February 2019 as we celebrate Chinese New Year with a traditional Lantern Festival and begin the Year of the Pig surrounded by beautiful feature lanterns. 

Visitors will be treated to performances by the Chinese Association Lion Team and Plum Blossom dancers. Bendigo Joss House Temple tours, tea tastings and Chinese calligraphy will also be available on the evening.

The lanterns, which will be on display throughout the evening, have been specially decorated by children from the Dr Harry Little Preschool and will look spectacular against the red backdrop of the Bendigo Joss House Temple.

Traditionally a visit to a Joss House during Chinese New Year is a special event that involves presenting food and donations to the gods, there is also plenty of incense burnt.

Gates open at 6:30pm and the festivities will take place from 7:00pm onwards, gold coin donations appreciated.
