The 16th Xiaoshan Festival of Red Bayberry in Du Family Village 2017-05-11
On June 12, the 16th Xiaoshan Festival of Red Bayberry in Du Family Village will kick off in Hangzhou Eco-park (杭州生态园) in Suoqian Town (所前镇) of Xiaoshan District (萧山区), Hangzhou.

Xiaoshan Festival of Red Bayberry in Du Family Village has been held for 16 consecutive times since it was first held in 1999. The history of the locals cultivating red bayberry can be traced back to some 1,700 years ago and Du Family red bayberry gained fame during the Northern Song Dynasty when it was served as imperial tribute. In 2010, Suoqian was listed as "The Hometown of Red Bayberry in China", the first town to have the honor. At present, Suoqian Town owns nearly 8,000 square kilometers red bayberry plantation. The annual production of red bayberry in the area can reach up to 1,200,000 kilograms.


Besides some traditional activities like tasting Du Family red bayberry and tour around Suoqian Town, a cultural festival given by the locals will be provided to entertain visitors.
