To promote Taiwan's tourism in the global community, so as to attract more foreign visitors to the country and increase tourism revenues, Tourism Bureau, MOTC has held the Taiwan Lantern Festival in recent years with the idea of "spreading the roots of folk culture while holding traditional fests at an international level."

Lantern parades are traditionally held on the Lantern Day. By combining traditional culture with top-notch technology, Taiwan Lantern Festival presents itself as a shining fest compatible with its international counterparts. The main lantern area is so beautiful that it is merely impossible to appreciate everything at once. Local and overseas folk troupes dedicate their remarkable performances to the festival's goers. Many other performance groups also bring their impressive shows to the audience. The festival has therefore been hailed by local participants and foreign guests alike.

In 2007, a Discovery Channel producer and his team came to Taiwan to join the festival, and concluded that this international event is worth some recognition. In fact, Taiwan Lantern Festival has since been chosen by the Discovery Channel to be one of the best festivals in the world. Discovery has made an hour-long documentary that has been shown globally to introduce the dazzling, charming Taiwan Lantern Festival.

The 2022 Taiwan Lantern Festival will draw inspiration from tradition to innovate and create breakthroughs. It will combine traditional lantern art and multidisciplinary art technology, while setting up a new collaboration model for artisans and artists –especially lantern specialists. The festival is expected to serve as a space for such artists and artisans to demonstrate their work, and it will also provide interactive experiences for visitors to learn about how traditional lantern art can be passed down from one generation to another. By incorporating creativity and innovation, tradition and modernity can be integrated to diversify this folk festival, making the Taiwan Lantern Festival unique among ethnic Chinese communities around the globe.
