2015 Taiwan Lantern Festival

October 21, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The Lantern Festival is traditionally celebrated on the 15th day of the first lunar month.

Temples big and small throughout Taiwan are festooned with lanterns and hold festive activities for the occasion. The Taiwan Lantern Festival is the most international event among the annual activities held at this time. It also ranks among the premier events on Taiwan’s tourism calendar and is recommended by the U.S. Discovery Channel as one of the world’s best festivals.

The 2014 Taiwan Lantern Festival was joined by Hollywood star Rob Schneider, who praised the event as “more Disney than Disney,” giving the festival’s international brand image a major boost.

The 2015 Taiwan Lantern Festival will be held in Taichung City. The main theme lantern area will be placed at Wuri High Speed ​Rail Special Zone: a 20-hectare venue in Taichung City spacious enough to accommodate visitors from across Taiwan and the world. The main theme lantern from the Year of the Ram festival in 2003 (still fully preserved at Taichung Park) will be displayed in tandem with the 2014 lantern, making Taichung the first city to host the festival for the same Chinese zodiac animal twice. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the lanterns and fun in Taichung.
