Need an excuse to get out of the house in this month?
Especially when the weather is still a bit chilly, and it’s always raining on and off, it can be all too easy to want to stay in all the time. Here are 5 events to get you out and about this month in Taipei.
Be sure to check out my article for Travelog, Taipei this March, for further details of the 5 events I thought you should all know about this month! Read on for a quick glance, complete with links to more info.
March Events in Taipei
Taipei Arts Awards (March 1-19)
Held at and by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, the Taipei Arts Awards showcases the works of twelve talented local artists. The exhibition has been showing since December last year, but it’s wrapping up towards the end of this month, so catch it before it goes!
La Fête: Natural Woman 2017 (March 11)
If you’re looking for a way to celebrate International Women’s Day this month, La Fête: Natural Woman 2017 has an engaging lineup of activities for all women in Taipei. Conversation, creativity, meditation, and more, this gathering of women aims to inspire and empower.
Holi Festival Taipei (March 12)
Every March, Taipei’s Holi Festival event proves itself to be one of the most popular events of the month. Why? Well, how many opportunities do you have to go wild throwing colour at your friends and hundreds of strangers?
I went to my first Holi Festival in Taipei two years ago, and had such a great time I made sure to go back last year as well. The event has changed over the past couple of years – and not only because it continues to grow in popularity.
Since last year, paint is now used at Holi in Taipei. Traditionally coloured powder is used at Holi, but it is now banned in Taipei events due to a tragic incident involving it which occurred here in 2015. When I went last year, you had to buy water guns or use plastic bottles to spread the paint. It’s certainly different from throwing powder, but it’s still a lot of fun (especially if you have a good group together)! Just let loose, and make sure to stick around for when everyone starts dancing to the Indian music – that’s almost the best part!
World Junior Figure Skating Championships (March 15-19)
The World Junior Figure Skating Championships will be held this year in Taipei for 4 days in mid-March. If you’re ever stunned by Olympic figure skaters, here’s a chance to see some of the best up and coming talent in figure skating right here in Taipei.
Treasure Hill Light Festival (March 21-31)
I stumbled upon news of the Treasure Hill Light Festival during my usual trolling of Taipei events, and was surprised I hadn’t heard of it before! I’m a huge fan of Treasure Hill Artist Village, which is an artist community located in Gonguan, Taipei. This festival looks well worth checking out, as there’s not only interesting art to check out, there’s also performances, an outdoor cinema food, and the general Treasure Hill area to explore.
