The 2018 Bangka Cultural Carnival will kick-off at 7 PM at the Bangka Park on Friday, July 20. The organizers welcome the public to come and enjoy the shows, experiencing the art and cultural atmosphere of the historical district!

The “Night of Traditional Arts” will take place between 7 PM and 9:30 PM on Friday, July 20. Highlighting the temple-related festival culture, the organizers invited Ming Hwa Yuan Arts and Cultural Group to perform the play “Mai Yi Wang Jia.” The Taiwanese opera performance merges traditional arts with modern theatric techniques.

From 2 PM through 9 PM on July 21, a series of performance will take place at the main stage. Starting with the Loongz General whose work combines the Asian dragon, “Lead General” processions, and street art performance. The show will be followed by stage acts by various student groups from local schools and local performance clubs to showcase the vitality of Wanhua’s communities.

According to District Director Chan Tianbao, this is the 14th year for the Wanhua District Office to hold the event. The annual event has been included in the overall plan to promote tourism for the district. With the revitalization of central Wanhua through the overhaul of Bangka Park, Longshan Underground Mall, Longshan Creative Industry b2 Base, Bangka Clothing Commercial District, and Bopiliao, the city expects to instill new vitality into the district.

Due to limited parking space in the area, the organizers encourage those who plan to visit the two-day festival to take the MRT (disembark at MRT Longshan Temple Station) or public bus. For more information, please call the district office during work hours (TEL: 02-23064468, ext. 206) or visit its Chinese website (http://whdo.gov.taipei/).
