Artists and celebrities strut and crow in Parnell.

Various artists and celebrities have joined in the fun to create flamboyantly colourful rooster art pieces preened and ready to strut, in celebration of the incoming Chinese Year of the Rooster.

From 28 Jan-12 Feb the largest rooster coop in Auckland will be set up for the exhibition of over 35 life-sized rooster art pieces, that will showcase over the two weeks in various locations in Parnell, before being auctioned for charity. During the exhibition period, patrons will be able to make silent auction bids.

Not wanting to sound too cocky, Parnell will put on a colourful display of as many roosters and rooster-themed ideas as it can possibly find space for in galleries and some retailers. Other Parnell shops, cafés and restaurants will showcase roosters in a variety of ways, from merchandise to menu options, window displays and other creative surprises.

Saturday 4 February, Parnell will crow with excitement over entertainment in Heard Park, including performances by a Lion Dance Troupe and martial arts demonstrations.

To see where to find the little show-offs, you can click this page, check out their profiles or download a map.

The Year of the Rooster celebration will conclude with the auction of the rooster artworks for the Starship Foundation - National Air Ambulance Service at Mossgreen-Webb’s auction house on the Thursday 16 February.

Working in cooperation with ATEED, who stage the Lantern Festival at the Domain, this is an annual signature event for Parnell during Chinese New Year celebrations.

This is an event not to be missed! Local and international visitors alike will be enthralled with the artists’ creations and stories of inspiration behind each artwork, during Chinese Year of the Rooster celebrations in Parnell.
