Brief Introduction

* Organizer: Hakka Affairs Council 
* Activity Schedule: Oct. 6 ~ Dec. 22, 2019
* Activity Background: Hakka harvest opera is a crucial event held around the time of autumn harvests and winter storage, which is October in the lunar calendar, as a way to thank gods for giving people a wonderful year. While farmers like to invoke sufficient rain and good harvests from gods in the spring, in autumn, after harvesting is done, to thank gods for their blessings, other than dedicating much sacrifice to express solemn gratitude, farmers hire troupes to give open-air performances to say thanks. 
* Our goals: This type of performing art promotes Hakka culture and folk beliefs, while serving as an entertaining, socializing and artistic occasion.
