National Day for Cultural Heritage

The celebration for the 2023 National Day for Cultural Heritage is set to take place on Sept. 16 and 17 at the Ministry of Culture's Cultural Heritage Park, bringing together 22 cities and counties to present a “National Cultural Heritage Expo.” This expo will feature theme exhibitions, a cultural heritage market, traditional and innovative performances, craft workshops, master lectures, screening rooms, and more, with the aim of fostering a deeper understanding of the beauty of cultural heritage among the general public.

In conjunction with National Heritage Day and in response to the theme “Living Heritage” of the 2023 European Heritage Days, the Bureau of Cultural Heritage will host a series of events at the Cultural Heritage Park during the third weekend of September, inviting the public to witness the results of collaboration between central and local authorities, thereby rejuvenating cultural heritage and fostering cultural tourism.

Concurrently, a variety of theme exhibitions will be held, including the special exhibition "Reviving Traditional Markets Across Taiwan - Exploring New Flavors in Everyday Life (全臺傳統市場創生再造-生活中遇見新味道)," which highlights the historical architecture and the culinary delights found within markets such as Taichung Second Market and Beidou Red Brick Market; the “Conserving the Past – Special Exhibition on Paint Restoration (續舊式-彩繪修護特展)” will present the results of painting restoration technology; and the “Underwater Exploration Exhibition (水下探奇展)" will employ interactive technology and games to share knowledge about underwater archaeology, exploration, and cultural heritage preservation.

The Bureau of Cultural Heritage has announced that as part of the celebration at the Cultural Heritage Park, a diverse range of performances will take place throughout the event that creatively combines both traditional and innovative elements. Members of the public are welcome to visit the Cultural Heritage Park on Sept. 16 and 17 to experience how cultural heritage becomes an integral part of our daily lives.
