China Festival is another unexpected cultural event to find on the Rhine River and reflects the growing influence of Chinese culture in Düsseldorf. Almost 300 companies are located here and almost 3,000 Chinese live and work in the city. On September 21, everyone is invited to celebrate at one of the largest outdoor festivals in a city that ranks No. 6 on a global list of cities with the highest quality of living (source: Mercer’s 2012 Quality of Life Survey).

The festival’s motto is “The Dragon Dances in Düsseldorf,” and visitors are invited to enjoy the extensive program of Chinese musical and cultural performances, from 11:00 am – 10:00 pm on the town’s square (Marktplatz), where red pagoda tents will be set up.

Acrobats and artists from Düsseldorf’s partner city Chongqinq, China, will return after last year’s stunning performances. In addition, there will be workshops on calligraphy, Chinese medicine, information on China as a travel destination, and plenty of culinary treats.
