마주 국제관광문화제

마주 국제관광문화제 축제는 타이완의 민속 문화중에서 가장 중요한 행사 중 하나로 꼽힌다. 이 '타이중 마주 국제관광문화제'는 2004년에 정부가 믿음, 무예, 산업, 예술, 관광, 학술 등의 문화를 주축으로 지역의 관광과 종교, 예술, 학술, 산업 방면의 향상을 도모하고 국제적 발전을 목표로 각종 다양한 연출을 선보이며 교류하고 있다. 기도를 한 후, 신을 가마에 태우고, 가마를 메고 각지의 묘를 방문하며 복과 장수를 기원하고, 다시 신을 궁에 안치하는 엄숙한 의식이 이루어진다.

Mazu International Festival

The Mazu Pilgrimage can be counted as one of the most important and largest folk culture events in Taiwan. The “Taichung City Mazu International Festival.” By interweaving religion, opera, martial arts, industrial culture, the arts, tourism, and academic culture, the intent on launching the event in 2004 was to promote the local area with events related to tourism, religious worship, performing arts, academic study, and the upgrading of local industry. Furthermore, using international culture as an appeal, the Festival put on every type and variety of exhibition and engaged in cultural and artistic exchanges. The actual date and time for offering incense to Buddha during the Taichung Dajia District Pilgrimage is not fixed but is determined by casting moon-shaped divination blocks during the Lantern Festival. In accordance with tradition, during the 8-day, 7-night pilgrimage there are eight primary ceremonies: prayers for peace, mounting the palanquins, the departure of the procession, the arrival of the procession, prayers for prosperity, wishes for longevity, the return of the procession, and the safe reinstallation of the statues.
