Feast of the Drunken Dragon

The Feast of the Drunken Dragon is a unique folk festival, celebrated by fishmongers and fishermen in Macao: it was inscribed respectively in the Macao Intangible Cultural Heritage List in 2009 and in the National Intangible Cultural Heritage List in 2011. The centrepiece of the celebrations is The Drunken Dragon and Lion Dance Parade, which starts at Senado Square: it is one of Macao's most distinctive cultural traditions, featuring men performing the Drunken Dragon dance while consuming wine and carrying a wooden dragon head and tail. Other highlights of the festival include evening folk performances at Kuan Tai Temple, and the distribution of “longevity rice”.
