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 2016 Taiwan Lantern Festival will soon be held in the Taoyuan City. The festival site is a 20-hectare belt starting from the THSR Taoyuan Station Square and expanding till the Qingtan Garden. This year’s festival takes inspirations from Toyuan’s natural ponds and ethnic cultures, and optoelectronics are used to present images which manifest Taoyuan’s culture, technology and visions. Only recently upgraded as a city directly administered by the central government in 2014, Taoyuan is ready to show its charm to the public this time. The festival will be different from any of the other traditional fests. Visitors from at home and abroad are all cordially invited to take part in this grand event. Welcome to the 2016 Taiwan Lantern Festival in Taoyuan!
