Lunar New Year marks the first new moon of the lunar calendar, and 2024 is the Year of the Dragon. In the Chinese zodiac, the dragon represents creativity, good luck and prosperity to begin the new year.

This month, you can experience Lunar New Year celebrations around Orange County at Fashion Island®, Irvine Spectrum Center®, The Market Place, Culver Plaza and Woodbury Town Center. From classic dragon dances to modern K-pop performances, these festivities invite everyone to let luck shine. Many Irvine Company apartment communities are located just minutes from these retail centers, making it easy for residents to take full advantage of the special events*.
