The 12th Spring Equinox & Chaoyang Folk Festival kicked off at Ritan Park of Chaoyang District in Beijing on March 21, the day when the fourth solar term spring equinox begins this year.

Apart from wonderful performances, the festival displayed various traditional folk food and invited masters of intangible cultural heritages like Chinese silk tapestry, palace embroidery, Pankou and Rabbit Figurine to tell stories and show craftsmanship on the site.

In addition, since the festival has been held for 12 consecutive years, this year a special 12th anniversary exhibition was held to review the history and highlights of previous festivals. The excellent photography works exhibited have also witnessed Chaoyang District's changes in cultural life, economy and urban construction.

“We hope the festival can be a platform to demonstrate the development and changes in Chaoyang District and spirit of Chaoyang residents. Meanwhile, we hope to take this opportunity to call on everyone to strengthen the preservation and inheritance of intangible cultural heritages and jointly promote the creation of outstanding cultural products so that the Chinese culture will show its permanent charm and people’s sense of gain in culture will be promoted,” introduced by an official from Chaowai Subdistrict.
