DCNYF is a programme of the City Arts Office, part of the Culture, Community & Recreation Department of Dublin City Council (Chief Executive Owen P. Keegan, Assistant Chief Executive Richard Shakespeare). The work of the Arts Office is made possible by the support of the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Paul McAuliffe, and the members of Dublin City Council.

Established in 2008, the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival (DCNYF) year-on-year celebrates, promotes and deepens the understanding of the Sino/Irish relationship.  The 2020 programme celebrates The Year of the Rat and marks the 13th year of this internationally recognised festival. With Chinese New Year’s Day falling on Saturday 25th of January 2020, the festival plans to deliver a high profile cultural and celebratory programme to mark this significant date in the Chinese Calendar.
