Feast of Na Tcha

The Feast of Na Tcha continues what is one of Macao's most distinctive cultural traditions, featuring several religious rituals and folk activities dedicated to Na Tcha, often considered the patron deity of children. This year, the festival is celebrated with three days of activities at the Na Tcha Temple located near the Ruins of St. Paul's. Associated events include a Lion Dance Parade touring several places in Macao and Taipa. The Prince Na Tcha Parade, featuring a golden dragon guard and celestial beauties scattering petals in abundance, is another fixture also dedicated to Na Tcha taking place during this period: it starts from the Na Tcha Ancient Temple on Calçada das Verdades, before heading to Senado Square.
