Ring in the Year of the Dragon with Lunar New Year Celebrations at CF Shopping Centres


Share to Social:


The Lunar New Year is almost here, and Cadillac Fairview (CF) is ready to celebrate with the return of dazzling decorations, engaging in-person programming and exclusive promotions at three of its shopping centres in the Greater Toronto Area.

With the Year of the Dragon expected to bring power, luck and success, CF is preparing to usher in this prosperous year with enhanced decorations, entertainment, activities, music and promotions at CF Markville, CF Fairview Mall, and CF Toronto Eaton Centre.

All three locations across the Greater Toronto Area will come alive with the return of CF’s beloved “supertrees,” an immersive and vibrant décor display, inspired by Singapore Marina Bay’s Supertrees. The shopping centres will also be decorated with refreshed floor decals of this year’s Chinese zodiac sign, the Dragon.

Guests are invited to a kick-off Lunar New Year celebration event with cultural performances including martial arts, Chinese dances, traditional eye dotting ceremonies, dragon and lion parades and more.

“Cadillac Fairview is so excited to celebrate the Lunar New Year with refreshed decorations and vibrant programming,” said Louise Della Fortuna, Director, Regional Marketing, Cadillac Fairview. “During this special time of year, our guests can come together and enjoy the festivities with new parades, martial arts performances and lion and dragon dances at several of our properties. We want to wish all our visitors happiness and good fortune for the year ahead as we welcome the Year of the Dragon.”
