The Decatur Lunar New Year Festival is Atlanta’s only Pan-Asian New Year celebration, featuring the diverse customs of several different Asian countries, including Vietnam, South Korea, China, and the Philippines. It will also kick off the City of Decatur’s Bicentennial celebrations.

Lunar New Year is about spending time with loved ones and engaging in traditions that bring good luck and health. Founded by Asian American families who have made their home in the City of Decatur, it is a chance to honor our diverse heritage and cultures and to celebrate the New Year with the greater Decatur Community. We also hope to promote inclusivity and education in a safe environment.

For most Asians, the year 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit. But for Vietnam, it’s the Year of the Cat. And because in Decatur we honor our unique diversity, we have created our own Lunar New Year Spirit Animal: the Cabbit. We are having a contest for who can illustrate the most auspicious Cabbit amongst all our young Decatur artists, and the winner will have their art featured at the festival.
