Cheung Chau Jiao Festival
“Cheung Chau Jiao Festival”, a unique Hong Kong folk festival

The “Cheung Chau Jiao Festival” is organised by the Hong Kong Cheung Chau Bun Festival Committee. Since 2012, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust has donated funds toward this annual celebration, which is inscribed onto the national list of intangible cultural heritage, so that members of the public can get to know this unique local tradition, while at the same time commit to preserving cultural activities in Hong Kong. The two major must-see events of the “Cheung Chau Jiao Festival” are the Bun Scrambling Competition and the Piu Sik Parade. Come to Cheung Chau this May with your family and friends and join in this richly festive and culturally unique traditional festival. Mark the date!

More Information

The annual carnival-like “Cheung Chau Jiao Festival” attracts tens of thousands of local and overseas visitors each year.
Children joining the Piu Sik Parade dress up as historic personalities or modern-day celebrities.
According to tradition, Cheung Chau villagers erect three bun towers opposite Pak Tai Temple; the ‘Ping An’ buns are taken home after the festivities, which are symbols of good health and well-being.
Shops on Cheung Chau also sell the “Ping An” buns, which are supposed to bring peace and good health to those who eat them.
