    2020 The Dice Game For Mooncakes (Bo-Bing) on Mid-Autumn Festival 2020-09-01~2020-09-30

    Tradition has it that the “Gambling for Moon-Cakes” game was originated by Hong Xu, born in Kinmen’s Hongmengang (Houfenggang). When Zheng Chenggong set out and attacked Jinling (Nanjing), Hong Xu was left behind to guard Xiamen. In order to calm the troops and comfort them in their homesickness, on Mid-autumn Festival day he had the soldiers of the garrison play this game, and as time went on it became a rather characteristic activity done in Jinmen on this holiday. “Gambling for moon-cakes” is a dice game, the winning prizes for which are moon-cakes. In the past Kinmen was a barren land and the people were poor. Families all hoped that their children would pass the civil service exams and thus make a name for themselves. Because they were all familiar with the civil service examination system, the six dice used in this game were given the names of the different levels or “degrees” of the examination system (zhuangyuan, bangyan, tanhua, jinshi, juren, and xiucai). The Kinmen County government conducts the “The Dice Game For Mooncakes (Bo-Bing) on Mid-Autumn Festival” in accordance with the ancient rules. Participants must all go through the three levels of the exam, “provincial, metropolitan, palace.” Then, according to their ranking, they each receive a moon-cake representing the particular status they have achieved, from “top graduate” (zhuangyuan) to “graduate” (xiucai). In addition, to amplify the event and make it more interesting, traditional Kinmen toys provided so that young and old can have fun to their heart’s content!

    2020 Yunlin International Puppets Arts Festival 2020-10-01~2020-10-11

    Shadow puppetry, glove puppetry, and marionette were introduced to Taiwan, blended with local customs and beliefs, and had developed into a unique art form of puppetry since, becoming three treasures of Taiwan. As time goes by, regardless of a vivid performance in the hands of the masters, an incidental music of live musicians’ pragmatic responses, or an audience of different generation, or even the purpose of performance switched from offering thanks to the gods to entertaining people, the significance of puppetry arts has been gradually changing. Yunlin International Puppet Arts Festival was founded in 1999, and Yunlin becomes puppets’ hometown in Taiwan, creating a variety of performing schools. To establish the International Puppet Arts Festival is to realize Yunlin as a cultural county, to carry forward the traditions of fine art, and to promote international cultural exchanges. The festival activities include inviting international puppet teams to perform, and sponsoring the Golden Palm Award to encourage skill contests and competitive performances of classic and innovative plays. In addition, it combines with exhibitions of arts, cultural and creative works, and installation art of agricultural product puppets, and promoting, encouraging, teaching and experiencing glove puppetry to enable sustainable development and to pass on the heritage of glove puppetry culture.
