Cadillac Fairview celebrates Lunar New Year and ushers in the Year of the Tiger with new experiences and promotions

With Lunar New Year fast approaching, CF is marking the special occasion with spectacular decor, a new digital contest, and exclusive promotions to share more about the holiday with Canadians, while safely embracing togetherness within communities.

TORONTO, ON (January 20, 2022) - With Lunar New Year fast approaching, Cadillac Fairview (CF) is marking the special occasion with spectacular décor, a new digital contest, and exclusive promotions to share more about the holiday with Canadians, while safely embracing togetherness within communities.

In honour of the Year of the Tiger, this year’s Chinese zodiac sign, select CF properties will display iconic décor, including beautiful lanterns and ornate decals, that highlight the traditions of Lunar New Year. Beginning January 21st, guests in British Columbia at CF Richmond Centre and CF Pacific Centre, and in Ontario at CF Markville, CF Fairview Mall, and CF Toronto Eaton Centre can witness and capture the vibrant displays as backdrops for photo-worthy moments. These five shopping centres will also feature Lunar New Year-themed digital creative including engaging videos about the holiday displayed on its large digital screens and directories.

Additionally, CF will introduce an exciting new digital contest based on Chinese mythology, inviting guests to scan QR codes located inside the participating shopping centres to play an interactive digital game called “Year of the Tiger Great Race.” Participants will be given a riddle related to one of the 12 different Chinese Zodiac signs and if they answer correctly, they will be entered into a contest for a chance to win a CF SHOP! card valued at $888 – a tribute to the lucky number eight, which symbolizes wealth and prosperity in Chinese culture. 

“We’re pleased to be able to safely celebrate the Lunar New Year at our CF properties with enchanting displays, interactive digital experiences and exciting promotions,” said Andrea Nickel, Director of Customer Experience and Marketing Communications, Cadillac Fairview. “While the holiday will understandably look different again this year, we’re eager to do our part in keeping these cultural traditions alive during this special time of year.”
