Celebrate the Lunar New Year at Hillsdale

It’s the Year of the Tiger and Hillsdale Shopping Center invites you to join the family-friendly 2022 Chinese New Year celebration on Saturday, Jan 29th. Lion Dancers, in vivid, colorful, dragon-like costumes will be performing their traditional dance and guests will enjoy live music complete with heart-pounding beating drums in the open-air of the North Block Plaza. The event is free to all and the first 500 shoppers will receive lucky red envelopes symbolizing energy, happiness and good wishes. Every celebration deserves some dim sum so be sure to get your order in at our neighboring Palette Tea Garden & Dim Sum. Take-away or Doordash are offered direct from the website. Indoor and outdoor dining is also available for those looking to make a day of it. Reservations are recommended and can be booked at paletteteagarden.com.

Be sure to post your new year’s wishes on the Hillsdale Selfie Wishing Wall or drop by at 5pm to launch a wishing lantern on the North Block fountain where the first 100 will be invited to write down 2022 hopes, dreams, and memories and then send them afloat in the North Block Plaza fountain.

LionDanceMe was founded by Norman Lau in 2012, who took a traditional Chinese cultural art and transformed it into a modern entertainment company. Originally started as a single high school club, LionDanceME has since expanded and added programs in schools all around San Francisco.
