Year of the Rat

We’re celebrating The Year of the Rat at MGM National Harbor. Visit us this holiday season for a variety of cultural experiences you won’t want to miss.

Lunar New Year 2020

Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival in China is now one of the five most celebrated festivals in the world. During this festival, families reunite over traditions like celebratory dinner, sweeping away bad fortune, fireworks and watching the ceremonial lion dance. For children, the gift of positive wishes and red envelopes filled with money are the highlight of New Year’s Day.

Lion Dance

Casino Valet

Celebrate Lunar New Year with MGM National Harbor. Join us as we ring in the Year of the Rat with a special lion dance throughout the resort. The performance will begin at the casino valet entrance as we “awaken the lions”. Be sure to arrive early to receive a lucky red envelope (quantities are limited) for your opportunity to feed the lion to bring good luck and fortune into the coming year!
