Mayor Ko takes pictures with bazaar visitorsSimilar to buying presents before Christmas Eve, Chinese people also have the tradition of going on shopping sprees before the Chinese New Year, as it is one of the most celebrated holidays in nations with Chinese ancestry.
Just before the Chinese New Year’s Eve in 1996, the vendors of Dihua Street transformed the annual Chinese New Year marketplace event offering ingredients for preparing New Year’s entrees into the “Chinese New Year Street Bazaar”. Henceforth, the annual event became a major attraction in Taipei City for both local residents and tourists.
CNY street bazaar features a variety of goodsThis year’s “Chinese New Year Street Bazaar” will take place from Feb. 1 through Feb. 14. In addition to being the ideal place to purchase food ingredients and holiday decorations, the street bazaar seeks to bring back memories of what Chinese New Year used to be for shoppers. What is the significance of Chinese New Year? A series of events associated with “Rediscovering the power of Chinese New Year!” will be held, allowing people to learn about the traditions of this festival.

Come to the Chinese New Year Street Bazaar at Dihua Street and secure the hidden power of the festivities! You will never be out of words to answer any question!
