On August 25, Zhejiang Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism announced the list of “Zhejiang Province Folk Culture and Art Lands” for the year 2021. 34 places in the province were on the list, among which 5 places in Wenzhou were selected by virtue of their unique folk culture and art projects.

It is reported that the 34 named folk culture and art lands, with strong regional characteristics, will promote the development and prosperity of folk culture and art and raise cultural-ethical standards in Zhejiang. The 5 selected projects in Wenzhou are “Double Seventh Folk Custom Festival” in Dongping Sub-district, Dongtou District, “3rd Day of the 3rd Lunar Month of She Nationality in Pingyang” in Qingjie She Nationality Township, Pingyang County, “She Nationality Culture” in Siqian She Nationality Town, Taishun County, “Yingjiekeng Luantan Opera” in Bilian Town, Yongjia County, and “Wenzhou guci” in Rui’an City.

With a history of over a thousand years, Wenzhou’s folk art is brilliant and colorful. The 5 folk culture and art lands in Wenzhou have their own charm and characteristics. In the island of Dongtou, the “Double Seventh Folk Custom Festival” is a traditional festival for praying for well-being, as well as a traditional festival that functions as adults day, children’s day, thanksgiving day, Valentine’s day and double-seventh day. “Song Contest on the 3rd Day of the 3rd Lunar Month” is the most distinctive festival in Qingjie She Nationality Township, when men and women of She Nationality gather in groups in the square and sing in pairs, in a lively atmosphere and with great pomp. Siqian She Township also retains a strong She culture. The “Yingjiekeng Luantan Opera” in Bilian Township, with clearly chanted lyrics and occasional martial arts movements, is close to the life of the masses. It is popular with the public and has high artistic appreciation value. It is of great significance to the study of the history of the Yongjia Luantan Opera art. Wenzhou guci, with Rui’an dialect as the standard language, is one of the largest types of music and art in southern Zhejiang. As the only county (county-level city or district) in Wenzhou to have been awarded the title of “Zhejiang Province Folk Culture and Art Lands”, Rui’an boasts a long history of guci represented by the Ruan School, which shows great vitality and vigour.
