Temple fair is one of the most important celebration activities during the Spring Festival. This traditional cultural event integrates religious worship and entertainment, and features almost all kinds of Chinese folk art. However, as an international city, Beijing's temple fairs have gradually incorporated western cultural elements to the celebration. When west meets east, the temple fairs in Beijing are becoming more fantastic and globally alluring.
