The Hakka Spring Festival Gala has taken place now for seven consecutive years.

It has been held successfully in Indonesia and Malaysia, in 2019 and 2020, respectively, and welcomed and praised by overseas Hakka populations.

The Thailand (Bangkok) Night of the gala this year was presented via video link, connecting Meizhou and Bangkok, spreading the Hakka culture to countries and regions along the “Belt and Road” and around the world, enhancing the bond between Hakka people at home and abroad.

According to the staff, the Gala this year incorporates the wonderful theatrical performances of Hakka regions, many of which have won awards at the Guangdong Art Festival.

It showcases successful practices of Meizhou’s fight against the COVID-19 epidemic, while shaking off poverty and securing a decisive victory in finishing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects in the past year.
