This year’s festival included three main gong cultures, the Ma, K’ho and Churu, aiming to preserve and promote gong culture, which was recognized as by UNESCO as intangible world cultural heritage in 2005.

The festival highlights included a parade and performances by the 12 gong troupes, which attracted thousands of local people and visitors. Traditional folk games and food of ethnic minority groups in the Central Highlands were also introduced during the festival.
