Brief Introduction

* Organizer: Zhudong Township Office, Hsinchu County
* Activity Schedule: Feb. 24~27, 2019
* Location: Hakka Theater Park
* Activity Background: Hakka people deeply respect the sky, the Earth and water. As a legend goes, while Fire God Zhurong and Water God Gonggong completed for the celestial leader’s status, they made a big hole in the sky. As a result, mankind suffered. Compassionate Queen Nuwa quickly mended the sky with colorful fired stones and brought order and stability back to the world. People were able to live a good life again. In Hakka culture, the Sky Mending Day was set to thank Nuwa for reviving the globe with her good deed. On the 20th day of the first month of the lunar calendar, Hakka people like to worship and “mend” the sky.

Folk singing contests are held in quite a few Hakka regions on the annual Sky Mending Day. Zhudong Township’s is the oldest and largest of all such contests of Taiwan.
