Join us on Argyle Street this February as Uptown continues its annual tradition of celebrating the Lunar New Year! You can usher in the Year of the Ox by exploring Argyle's unique offerings of cuisine, goods, and services while enjoying a burst of red lanterns hanging along the street from Broadway to Sheridan. Get a glimpse here:


In place of the parade this year, we’ll be premiering a free virtual program featuring traditional cultural performances and local arts groups as well as stories from Argyle’s past and present. Stay tuned to this event page for details on how to watch with us on what would've been our parade date - Saturday, February 20 at 12:00 noon.


SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SMALL BUSINESSES! A list of businesses you can support can be found on the event page:

Get your free RED ENVELOPE! It's tradition to pass out red envelopes on the lunar new year (sorry - ours won't have lucky money inside). BUT...our envelopes will have a free Year of the Ox sticker, and a few lucky winners will find a Golden Ticket inside their envelope, good for a Year of the Ox gift from Uptown United. Check out where you can find these envelopes here:
