CIBS Programme: Festivals of Hong Kong’s Ethnic Minorities

Ethnic minorities make up about 8% of Hong Kong’s population, but how much do we really know them?This programme serve as an introduction to the different festivals that Hong Kong’s ethnic minorities may celebrate (eg. Dating Festival, Songkran). Similar festivals or beliefs will also be discussed and compared. At the same time, we will get a glimpse into the life of ethnic minorities in Hong Kong and hear about how they celebrate their festivals in Hong Kong.
