Chinadaily / The temple fair is the most distinctive folk activity during Spring Festival in Beijing. Most temple fairs offer cultural performances, traditional arts and crafts, games and local snacks.

Chinese can recall childhood memories and see vanishing handicrafts at the temple fair, while for foreigners, a temple fair will be the best chance to experience authentic folk culture and enjoy the unique craftsmanship of folk artisans.

This year, a variety of temple fairs will be staged in Beijing during the upcoming Chinese New Year, and we have selected some to guide you through the festival.
