Chengdu International Peach Blossom Festival

Chengdu blossoms in the spring with the annual Chengdu International Peach Blossom Festival. Peach trees number more than 17 million, making Chengdu one of the biggest peach-growing regions in China.

Festival Activities

The festival generally lasts about a month, offering a wide variety of activities. The main attraction, however, is simply viewing and enjoying the peach blossoms that fill the landscape.

Other festivities include photo and art shows, exhibitions on growing peaches, cultural performances, and, of course, lots of eating to traditional Sichuan foods. Sometimes there are martial arts tournaments.

Festival Background

Started in 1987, this fragrant event is sometimes known as the Longquan Peach Blossom Festival, since it is held in Longquanyi District southeast of Chengdu.

Dates vary somewhat from year to year, but the annual event takes place around mid-March when the peach trees are in full blossom.

It is sponsored by the Chengdu Municipal Government and the Sichuan Province Tourism Office to promote economic development. It is successful in this effort, since it attracts tens of thousands of visitors a year, who spend the equivalent of more than US$1 million.
