Tianjin Festivals

Mazu Culture and the Tourism Festival
The old Mazusaying goes: “The Goddess Temple appeared long before Tianjin.” Centuries of Mazu influence have shaped the development of Tianjin, where Mazu culture continues to thrive. The birthday of the Heavenly Queen on the 23rd day of the third lunar month each year is still celebrated with typical Mazu fervor under the flag ‘Mazu Culture and the Tourism Festival’. Ancient rituals such as the sacrificial ceremony and the display of lamps on the Haihe River come alive along with temple fairs, musical and dance performances and commerce and trade.
