New York City's Chinese food and culture festival, Dragon Fest, returns with an expanded calendar of events, promising a bigger and more vibrant celebration of Chinese heritage. After a successful run in 2023, where Dragon Fest attracted over 200,000 attendees across five events, the festival is set to return in 2024 with an even more diverse and expanded lineup, featuring 16 unique events across various iconic locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.

“Our goal is to make Chinese culture and cuisine more accessible to everyone in New York City, and this year's expanded schedule allows us to do just that," said Biubiu Xu, Founder of Dragon Fest.

This year, visitors can expect over 100 varieties of traditional, popular, and rare Chinese foods, including soup dumplings, dragon's beard candy, lotus root sandwich, sugar-coated chestnuts, grilled cold noodles, iron plate tofu, fried skewers, and milk cap tea, among others.

Dragon Fest will be held at various location from spring through fall. For more information and schedule of events, visit
