The San Francisco Chinese New Year Festival and Parade is an annual event in San Francisco. Held for approximately two weeks following the first day of the Chinese New Year, it combines elements of the Chinese Lantern Festival with a typical American parade. First held in 1858, along what are today Grant Avenue and Kearny Street, it is the oldest and largest event of its kind outside of Asia, and the largest Asian cultural event in North America.

Chiou-ling Yeh traces the development of the Chinese New Year parade and beauty pageant in San Francisco from their inception in 1953 as part of an effort to enhance the Chinese business community's ties with American culture, business, and politics. Bringing to light the dynamics and major debates within the Chinese American community from the politics of the Cold War era to the youth rebellions of the sixties to ry identity politics, Yeh shows how this community negotiated its own public space within the larger society and created a new image for itself.

This provocative history of the largest annual Chinese celebration in the United States—the Chinese New Year parade and beauty pageant in San Francisco—opens a new window onto the evolution of one Chinese American community over the second half of the twentieth century. In a vividly detailed account that incorporates many different voices and perspectives, Chiou-ling Yeh explores the origins of these public events and charts how, from their beginning in 1953, they developed as a result of Chinese business community ties with American culture, business, and politics. What emerges is a fascinating picture of how an ethnic community shaped and was shaped by transnational and national politics, economics, ethnic movements, feminism, and queer activism.
