Welcome the Year of the Rabbit at Metropolis at Metrotown

The shopping centre is open Monday to Saturday 10:00am to 9:00pm, and Sunday 11:00am to 7:00pm. Here’s what’s in store for the Lunar New Year:

Embrace the ambience with Lunar New Year displays
While shopping at Metropolis at Metrotown during Lunar New Year festivities, visitors will wander among cheerful lanterns and delicate cherry blossoms.

Learn the intricacies of traditional Chinese art
Certain art forms have been practiced in Chinese culture for thousands of years. During Lunar New Year, Metropolis at Metrotown will host a variety of art workshops, including calligraphy and paper cutting, for shoppers of all ages. 

Marvel at dazzling dance performances
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during Lunar New Year celebrations, cultural dance troupes will mesmerize audiences with visual storytelling.

Watch a fiery Lion Dance
The lion dance is performed to ensure prosperity and good luck for the upcoming year. Hosted by performers of all ages, the lion dance at Metropolis at Metrotown will bless the shopping centre, along with retailers and shoppers, on January 25 at 10am.

Snap a photo with the God of Wealth
Tsai Shen Yeh, or the God of Wealth, will bring good fortune and blessings to shoppers, who can take a photo with the deity as a lucky souvenir.

Indulge in delectable Chinese cuisine
Chef Tony’s Dim Sum and T&T Supermarket, both located at Metropolis at Metrotown, serve authentic Chinese fare. During Lunar New Year, shoppers can sample a snack box with seeds, candy and lotus, or shop at Tong Ren Tang for traditional Chinese herbs.

Spin for lucky money
Shoppers who spend $188 or more (before tax; must present same-day receipt) can test their luck by spinning a wheel to win a $20 gift card from Metropolis at Metrotown, T&T Supermarket, Walmart, Real Canadian Superstore or Hudson’s Bay Company. Spin again to earn a wish for good health, prosperity or fortune, along with a surprise gift box. Bonus: any shopper who visits Metropolis at Metrotown during Lunar New Year can enter to win one of three gift cards for $888.

Give back to increase your own good fortune
For every shopper who spins the wheel for lucky money, Metropolis at Metrotown will donate $5 to Angels on Earth Society. The Burnaby-based charity provides cultural education to students at no cost, with a focus on different elements of Chinese culture.
