The festival gives an opportunity for locals to get together and reconnect. It is also a perfect change for visitors to enjoy Chishang’s beautiful scenery, experience the Hakka’s unique farming culture and enjoy some world-class produce. This year, the Winter Harvest Festival’s theme is “Song and Dance to Bring Peace and Safety.” Dance groups from around Taitung are invited to reflect the Hakka’s rich and diverse culture through lively and joyful expression.
