Yangmingshan Flower Festival Ushers in Spring Season

The much-anticipated Yangmingshan Flower Festival is here!

This year the floral fest features the trio – camellias, cherry blossoms, and azaleas – sending spring greetings to tourists who make their pilgrimage to one of the most popular flower season destinations in Taiwan.

A series of exciting events will kick off with the opening ceremony at Yangming Park’s Flower Clock starting 10 AM on February 7. Paper Windmill Theatre will take to the stage with a performance spotlighting Yangmingshan flowers and local history. A makeshift post office will be set up at the venue, offering a unique flower season-themed commemorative stamp for stamp collectors.

To add artistic accents to the event, there will be a presentation of six large art installations by Taiwanese artist Wu A-sun at the Flower Clock and an exhibition showcasing eight cherry blossom paintings by renowned Japanese artist Sumio Goto. The paintings employ the use of rich mineral pigments and will be displayed at Xinhai-Guangfu Building in Yangming Park.

Other highlights include picnics, tours at the historical site housing the biggest US military dependents’ village in Asia, and more. The organizers invite the public to visit the 2015 Yangmingshan Flower Festival between February 7 and March 15, noting that the Taiwan cherry flower is expected to reach full bloom between Valentine’s Day and the Chinese New Year Holiday.
