Dragon Boat Festival is one of the traditional festivals still widely celebrated nowadays in different parts of China. However, different places have their own rituals and customs owing to the wide disparity in traditional local cultures in China. Take Hong Kong as an example, the celebration activities for Dragon Boat Festival take different forms in urban and rural areas, and this is also the case in different villages, despite that they are co-located in the New Territories. This talk mainly presents the festive events held by various community organisations in Hong Kong at Dragon Boat Festival in the past century, demonstrating how this traditional Chinese festival has been developed into the “intangible cultural heritage” nowadays under the active support of the government in Hong Kong.
