Celebrating China at 2018 Newcastle China Week

Celebrate Chinese culture with fun events in Hamilton to enjoy with your friends and family.

Hawker Night Food Market – Saturday 22 September

Take your taste buds on a journey through the Orient and beyond at the Newcastle China Week Hawker Night Food Market. The event begins at twilight on Saturday 22 September on the sprawling greens of Gregson Park, Hamilton. Meet with friends at communal dining tables under the starry marquee or bring your picnic rug so you can sit back and enjoy the night’s entertainment of music, roving entertainment and fire displays.

The Kent Hotel Hamilton Garden Bar will also be popping back up to give you the greatest seat (and service!) in the park while all the best Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Malaysian and fusion foods will be on hand to feed the crowds. The desserts will delight this year, with chocolate dipped strawberries, grilled sweet pastry cones filled with ice-cream, gelato, tea and light bulb soda to satisfy the sweet tooths!

Cultural Street Festival- Sunday 23 September

Celebrate Chinese culture with your family at the China Cultural Street Festival. It returns to Beaumont Street in Hamilton on Sunday 23 September 2018 from 10am – 3pm. This family fun day out will celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival and feature the spectacular Jin Wu Koon Lion Dancing on poles and Dragon dancing through the streets of Hamilton as well as a prestigious performance direct from China by the Beijing Dance Academy.

Enjoy plenty of food, colour, culture, markets and interactive experiences for an unforgettable family day out. Try out the Newcastle 360 Virtual Reality Experience, a traditional tea ceremony, Chinese language mini-courses, dumplings and so much more.

Snap a selfie with our giant 8m golden dragon, a friendly panda or the God of Fortune as we come together to celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival in the heart of cosmopolitan Hamilton.
