Focusing on the theme Blessings with Beijing, Celebrations of Chinese New Year, the annual Yancheng Temple Fair was held in Yanqi town, Huairou district, Beijing during the 2019 Spring Festival holiday.

The temple fair showcases a variety of cultural events, including folk shows, parade tours, exhibitions, and song and dance.

It offers the perfect opportunity for visitors from both home and abroad to experience traditional culture.

Fair-goers also had the chance to taste local snacks and purchase souvenirs in Yanqi town.

The fifth day of Chinese New Year, or Danian Chuxu, is commonly known as the day to worship the god of wealth and eat Chinese dumplings.

On Feb 9 the fourth Yancheng Five Fortune Dumpling Banquet was a highlight of the temple fair, attracting tourists who tasted dumplings of different flavors and shapes.

As an integral part of the 29th Chinese Massive Cultural and Art Festival, the Yancheng Temple Fair enriches the town’s cultural life.
