CHICAGO – To celebrate the Lunar New Year, State Senator Mike Simmons (D-Chicago) is inviting community members to join him at the 2023 Argyle Lunar New Year Parade.  

Celebrate the year of the rabbit on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m. at the corner of West Argyle Street and North Winthrop Avenue, hosted by Uptown United, 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman, and over 20+ local community groups.

The event has happened for more than forty years and the day will feature cultural institutions, dancers and performers, family friendly activities and a parade that will begin at 1 p.m. on the corner of West Argyle Street and North Winthrop Avenue.

“I am honored to participate in the Argyle Lunar New Year Parade again, and usher in a year of hope and prosperity with our diverse AAPI community,” said Simmons. “Coming together as a community is a gift that I don’t take for granted, and I hope everyone will join me.”

The parade will kick-off at Argyle and Winthrop. The parade route will head west on Argyle, north on Broadway, east on Winona, and south on Sheridan and then back to Argyle. Due to CTA construction, the parade will not head into Ainslie, as it has in years prior.
