The locations of the Lunar New Year Fairs in 2024

The Lunar New Year Fairs were cancelled in 2021 and 2022 due to anti-epidemic measures that were put in place by the Hong Kong government to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The fairs resumed in 2023, but there were no food stalls as it was still mandatory to wear masks in indoor and outdoor spaces in Hong Kong at the time.
