  • Asian Pacific Lunar New Year Festival The beauty of the ancient Orient is on display at this event, which begins with a Spectacular Parade of Nations at 10 a.m. Throughout the day there will be traditional Asian music, Taiko drumming, dance performances, art displays and various other demonstrations by community and professional groups.

    January in California launches with the mega-festival--the Tournament of Roses which includes the famous Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl (college football game) held in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

While millions of visitors and residents in California are nursing their hang-overs or late night partying at New Year's Eve celebrations, some are out participating in decades-long traditions of Polar Plunges into the Pacific Ocean or some body of water in California.

January means the launch of the migrating whales and boat tours to see them. It also is the finest time to visit California deserts before they get too hot. You'll find a variety of festivals in January through April.

Events are not guaranteed. It is your responsibility to confirm before going.
