  • Spring Festival Culture of two 20s- The Year of Rat comes in a pair

    The New Taipei City has launched a series of “Spring Culture” activity every spring festival. The year 2020 is no exception. We cordially invite everyone to join our cultural activities and create your own special memory of the festive season.

    Prize through your fingertip
    The New Taipei City Cultural Affairs Bureau will also upgrade their cultural activities in 2020, to acknowledge the arrival of the year of rat, the head of the Zodiacs. It will be the Bureau’s first attempt to engage members of the public through online games. You will have the opportunity to win a special prize through your fingertips.

    Spring Couplets and Red Envelope
    The festival is the time for a new set of spring couplets, and red envelopes at the ready. In New Taipei City, on Saturday, January 18 at 2 pm, calligraphers will put their brush to work on site at the Yingge Ceramics Museum, Tamsui Heritage Museum and the Lin Family Mansion and Garden. Their spring couplets promise to bring you endless thrill of the festive season before the holiday arrives. On Sunday (January 19) the DIY Workshop at Fort San Domingo will launch “Colorful Red,” an activity for new immigrant instructors from Vietnam to paint red pockets on site.

    Abundant gifts come with the golden rats
    On the second day of the Lunar New Year, Yingge Ceramic Museum has prepared “Year of Rat” gifts for the first 168 of their visitors. Later, on the fifth day of the year, the first 30 visitors will be awarded the special spring couplets with calligraphy “emulating the Yen Style.”
    During the holiday season, Gold Museum will launch “Two make a union,” inviting a mystery VIP to distribute 202 shiny “golden tarts” to visitors as we usher in year 2020.
