Oakridge Park celebrates the Year of the Rabbit with unforgettable culinary experiences and cultural programming

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Westbank, in partnership with QuadReal Property Group, has announced the annual Oakridge Park Lunar New Year Celebration for 2023 at Fairmont Pacific Rim. Now in its 5th year, the 2023 celebration marks several milestones in the creation of Oakridge Park, bringing together the best in culture and community through beautiful installations, activations, and culinary offerings.

Celebrating the Year of the Rabbit, a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity, 2023’s Lunar New Year at Oakridge Park will be a manifestation of Oakridge Park’s commitment to culture in all forms, including unique culinary experiences, which will be brought to life in the Food Hall by Time Out Market. At Fairmont Pacific Rim from January 16th to February 12th, visitors can expect incredible programming daily from 11:00 a.m. PT - 6:00 p.m. PT, including family-focused activities such as: children’s ballet classes with the award-winning Goh Ballet, complimentary Lunar New Year family portraits, a floral arrangement workshop, as well as musical performances. For an unforgettable culinary experience, a sushi and omakase menu curated by Michelin-Awarded Chef Masayoshi Baba will be available for booking online in The Lobby Lounge & RawBar, offering visitors a taste of what is to come at Oakridge Park.

One of North America’s largest and most significant redevelopments, Oakridge Park is a complete community around which the bulk of Vancouver’s future growth will concentrate, with civic, retail, workspace, and residential uses anchored by a nearly ten-acre park. Comprised of five linked spaces, each with its own identity, the park will act as a connector for all residents and user groups and be home to recreation, music venues, public art installations and culinary experiences that represent Oakridge Park’s commitments to art, design and broadly, culture.

“As Vancouver’s new town centre and a cultural hub for the city, Oakridge Park, at its core, is a celebration of Vancouver’s multiculturalism and diversity. We envision the Food Hall at Oakridge Park as a central organizing element, where residents and visitors from around the world can come together and connect through food,” shares Ian Gillespie, Founder & CEO, Westbank. “Chef Masayoshi’s 2023 Lunar New Year offering will give guests a glimpse of the inspiration behind the many culinary experiences we have planned at Oakridge Park. We hope you enjoy.”

In addition to its daily programming, the Oakridge Park Lunar New Year Celebration will offer private sales appointments and exclusive incentives for available homes, including the opportunity to purchase with 8% down and select from purchaser gifts, including a custom-designed Fazioli piano, a furniture package from B&B Italia, a luxury vehicle, or an Experience Trip to Tokyo, Shanghai, London, or Paris.
