Red Bayberry Carnival in Dujia Village 2018-05-31
On June 18 the 17th Xiaoshan Festival of Red Bayberry in Dujia Village will kick off in Hangzhou Eco-park in Dujia Village (杜家村), Suoqian Town (所前镇),Xiaoshan District (萧山区). The festival, held consecutively now for 16 years, honours this old-time imperial tribute and is a must for all bayberry lovers. 

The red bayberries needed for this scrumptious June festival are all produced in Dujia Village which has a time-honoured history in the cultivation of this delicious fruit. The history of the locals cultivating red bayberry can be traced back to some 1,700 years ago. In fact Dujia Bayberry gained its fame during the Northern Song Dynasty when it was served as an imperial tribute. In 2010 Suoqian Town, which administers Dujia Village, was listed as the first town to be honoured as ‘The Hometown of Red Bayberry in China’ and now it owns nearly 8,000 square kilometers of red bayberry plantations and the annual production of red bayberry in this area can reach up to 1,200,000 kilograms.

Besides some traditional activities like tasting Dujia red bayberry and touring Suoqian Town, a cultural festival given by the locals will also tastefully satisfy its visitors.
