Festival to Celebrate a Bumper Crop

China Today,September 14, 2017 Adjust font size:

ONE of several ethnic groups in northwest China, the Tu people mainly live in Qinghai, Gansu, Yunnan and Guizhou provinces. Each summer after threshing the wheat, the Tus will hold recreational activities to celebrate a good harvest. Lasting 60 days, the large folk festival, called Nadun locally, also worship the gods. The Tu people drink wine and dance merrily, and talk about farming and life. While for young people, experiencing their first taste of love, Nadun is a golden opportunity to find“The One.”


 Celebrating the Nadun Festival by jubilantly dancing.

In 2006, the Nadun Festival was listed as a national intangible cultural heritage by the State Council.
