Quezon City's Chinatown, Banawe All Set For The Year of Metal Rat

Aside from Binondo, Banawe is the best place to go to satisfy your cravings of Chinese cuisine. Name it from sweet and sour pork, fish in black beans, birthday noodles, siopao, siomai, milk teas and other Chinese delicacies such as hopia and the new cheese tikoy - you can find it here in Banawe. Exactly one week from today, we will be welcoming the Year of the Metal Rat and a grand celebration will be happening in Banawe, Quezon City. The Quezon City government in partnership with QC Association of Filipino-Chinese Businessmen, Inc & QC Chinatown Development Foundation Inc. will host the Chinese New Year celebration to usher in the "Year of the Metal Rat" on January 26, starting at 3p.m. in Banawe.

Mayor Joy Belmonte will lead the celebration with People's Republic of China (PRC) Ambassador to the Philippines His Excellency Huang Xilian as guest of honor. Also expected to join are Filipino Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII) President Dr. Henry Lim Bon Liong, Quezon City Association of Filipino Chinese Businessmen Inc. (QCAFCBI) President Joseph Lim Bon Huan and Quezon City Chinatown Development Foundation (QCCDF) Chairman Charles Chen.

Among the activities lined up includes:

  • Traditional dragon and lion dance performances
  • Chinese music and arts performances, 
  • A wushu martial arts exhibition to highlight the rich Chinese culture. 

The city's very own Symphonic Band will also perform various musical renditions. Our foodie friends should not miss the Chinese deli food and trade bazaar and traditional Chinese cooking demonstrations. Renowned Feng Shui Master Rev. Fr. Wong Seng Tian will also give his predictions for the Chinese New Year 2020.

To end the celebration, there will be a fireworks display, followed by a grand concert of the Climax Band and singer Rico Blanco. In 2013, the Quezon City government installed two Chinatown arches at Banawe Street corner Quezon Avenue, designating the area as "Chinatown of Quezon City" and branding it as a world-class hub for the Chinese community.

Furthermore, the Quezon City government passed City Ordinance 2453-2015, formally designating the QC Chinatown in Banawe as one of its tourism districts, thus improving its accessibility, ensuring environmental sustainability, and enhancing its infrastructure and amenities. More exciting happenings are coming up here in Banawe. I hope to see you there. Kung Hei Fat Choi 2020
