The Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance Returns After 4-Year Hiatus

Three-day Traditional Ceremony!

2023 Sep 28 - 2023 Sep 30

Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance

After a four-year hiatus, the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance is finally back, just in time to celebrate the Mid-Autumn festival!

When the people of Tai Hang village miraculously stopped a plague with a fire dragon dance in the 19th century, they inadvertently launched a tradition that has since become part of China’s official intangible cultural heritage.

A city has since replaced the village, but the ceremony lives on! And you and the whole family have this chance to enjoy the three-day ceremony facilitated by hundreds of performers, tens of thousands of sticks of incense and a 67-meter dragon that winds its way through the crowded streets in a spectacle of fire and fury! Follow the parade route map here.

DETAILS:

September 28-30, 2023:  The performance is from 8:15pm-10:30pm on September 28 and September 29, with the performance ending at 10pm on September 30. A recommended vantage point is Wun Sha Street.

September 29, 2023:  On September 29, the performance will also be held from 10:45pm-11:30pm at Victoria Park.
