Event Details

The Chinese New Year is a public holiday in Taiwan, and it is hugely celebrated. For 2022, it’s the year of the Tiger.

This public holiday is also known as Lunar New Year, and it’s one of the major holidays in Taiwan as each day is off for schools and most businesses.

The Chinese New Year holiday begins on January 31st which is Chinese New Year’s Eve since February 1st is the official Chinese New Year’s Day).

This year will provide Taiwan with 6 days of a public holiday, which includes Chinese New Year’s Eve, (from January 31st to February 5th).

However, the government has decided that the Saturday of January 22nd, 2022 is a make-up working day due to having Friday, February 5th as a public holiday in the Chinese New Year vacation.

What to expect on this event:

There will be no additional stalls will be set up and no sampling is allowed to reduce the risk of the Covid-19 infection.

However, at the center of the event is Dihua Street, which will offer a great variety of merchandise, including dried foods such as nuts and seafood, as well as snacks often associated with the Chinese New Year despite not hosting a grand street bazaar as in previous years.

Other highlights in the historic block of Dadaocheng, where Dihua Street is located, will include a huge auspicious tiger balloon installation symbolizing wealth, a paper lantern making activity, and a street studio featuring live shows by Taiwan’s well-known podcasters in the largest podcaster mixer in the country, according to the organizer.

Shopee has a special section for the event, providing up to 40% discounts for CNY products from 60 businesses in the Dihua Street district and holding raffles with prizes totaling a value of NT$10 million (US$362,078). A live TV shopping show by ETMall will be held on Jan. 21 in the area, with Mayor Ko Wen-je and Deputy Mayor Huang Shan-shan (黃珊珊) attending as special guests.
