Palo Alto Chinese New Year Fair

Palo Alto Chinese New Year (CNY) Fair was inaugurated in 2016 and has since become a beloved tradition of our city. This festive, city-wide event celebrates Chinese culture, promotes friendship among residents of different cultures and contributes to the vibrancy and health of our diverse community.

The CNY Fair is organized by Palo Alto Chinese Parents Community and co-sponsored by City of Palo Alto and the PTA Council. In addition to contributing to the fabric of our diverse community, the CNY Fair promotes giving back to our community, and donate all the proceeds to Palo Alto schools.
