2018 is the third year in a row Parnell is celebrating Chinese New Year. For the past two years, the Parnell Business Association have hosted their annual Chinese New Year, in celebration of the Year of the Monkey and then Rooster.

2018 is the Year of the Dog. Dogs are playful, loyal, fun loving, true members of the family, so 2018 will be an exciting year for all those puppy lovers out there!

The feeling that dogs emote is hard to beat, and no doubt the community will love getting involved in all the events that Parnell will have to offer during this celebratory time.

The 20 exclusive ‘Dogs of Art’ designed by celebrities and artists alike will be displayed in Parnell for two weeks from 17 February 17 through to 4 March, and we invite all those who adore dogs and appreciate fine art to enjoy the exhibition, and participate in the Auction at Mossgreen-Webb’s on 8 March.

Dogs are always ready for some fun, and so are we! It’s a time of year in Parnell where culture, art, creativity and local events collide, and we are looking forward to welcoming you to Chinese New Year 2018 – Year of the Dog.

As in previous years, Chinese New Year celebrations in Parnell are not limited to just one event, there are many in the calendar in February and March, so there is something for everyone to enjoy, dog lovers, event lovers and art lovers!


  • 17 February - 4 March: Exhibition of 20 'Dogs of Art' pieces displayed in select galleries and retailers throughout Parnell in celebration of the Year of the Dog.
  • Thursday 8 March: Live Auction of the 'Dogs of Art' at Moss Green-Webb's.
