The Temple fair, following the Spring Festival and held at Quxi Town of Wenzhou, dates back to over 200 years ago. It was formed spontaneously by local people. Being adjacent to three counties, and the source of three rivers, Quxi Town has been an important rural fair for Nanping paper (a kind of rough toilet paper), animal and plant byproducts, and wood. Following the celebration of Chinese New Year and rest in the whole 1st lunar month, the 2nd lunar month is a time when locals began to prepare for agricultural production in a new year. They need to sell or buy farm tools, farm cattle, animal and plant byproducts, clothes, and seeds. Over time the fair took shape. Later, with flourishing trade and increased participants, entertaining performance, folk activities and deities reception parade began to appear at the fair.
