Asian Events Trust with support from Stonewood Homes is thrilled to be able to reschedule the fireworks Display to Friday, which signifies the end of a two-week celebration of Chinese New Year. We thank everyone, including Wellington City Council and Pyrostar International for their patience and understanding as we worked through the postponement from the weekend.

This new date will be a fantastic way to conclude Chinese New Year celebrations in Wellington and we look forward to seeing you there. Please help us spread the word by sharing the news with your friends and family!

Asian Events Trust Addresses Coronavirus Concerns

Asian Events Trust (AET) would like to address the concerns surrounding the festival this weekend (1-2 February 2020) and the Coronavirus outbreak in China.

We acknowledge and understand these concerns, but at this stage the festival will proceed.

We have also been in communication with the China Cultural Centre regrading our international acrobatic group, Chongqing Longjiang Arts Troupe. The group have been in New Zealand for the last week and have a clean bill of health, with no concerns. 

We will be monitoring the situation closely and will post any further updates. 

You can also visit the Ministry of Health website for updates and further information.
