China is a country with many ethnic groups and a colorful cultural heritage. In China, there are many traditional festivals. Most of the traditional festivals in China are based on the Chinese lunar calendar.

These festivals are inclusive of local performance of dancing, singing, bull fighting, horse racing, etc.  They are also big market days for locals, people take all home-made product to trade with shop owners for what they need.  Need to explore China more deeply, check our Event calendar and contact us for more details of that area and local customs.
