The third Spring Festival fair was held at the central square of Huangcunxili Community of Xingfeng Subdistrict of Daxing District in Beijing from February 7 to 8, 2018. The fair allows residents to purchase various and quality goods for the Spring Festival on their doorstep without travelling far.

During the two-day fair, a variety of Spring Festival goods like vegetables, beef, mutton, dried fruits and nuts, Beijing snacks, wine and rice were on sale with excellent quality and reasonable price at the main venue of the central square. Intangible cultural heritage masters gave a live performance of “traditional Beijing peddling”, which attracted lots of residents.

At indoor sub venues, traditional culture performances such as instrumental performances, flower arrangements, making dough sculptures and paper-cutting received enthusiastic attention from residents who gave warm applause and took photos of each artwork. It is learned that the artworks will all be sent to the elderly over 90 and difficult families in the subdistrict as a holiday gift.

With the theme of “convenience, public welfare and culture”, the Spring Festival fair called on nearly 30 excellent folk businesses and volunteer teams to sell goods on residents’ doorstep. It aims to enhance community residents’ sense of belonging and happiness, create a happy and auspicious festive atmosphere and ensure a relaxed and happy new year for community residents.
