Main Xinjiang Festivals Events

Corban Festival
Corban Festival (Muslim People)
Corban is an important festival for Muslims. Corban Festival is also called Zaishengjie while the Hui people call it Zhongxiaojie (festival of faith and obedience). It comes 70 days after the Feast of the Fast Breaking, or the tenth day of the second month in the Islamic calendar. The festival bears the meaning that disciples will devote everything to show their obedience and faith to Allah.
Grape Festival
Grape Festival (Uygur People)
The Grape Festival is not just an ode to Turpan`s most important agricultural product, but a chance to celebrate the local way of life. Expect plenty of cultural treats in this remote corner of Xinjiang China. This oasis town in Eastern Xinjiang is picturesquely covered in vine trellises, shading the friendly locals from some of the fiercest heat in China. Almost every household has a hand in the grape business and the markets are full of sweet dried raisins. Its a relaxing place where donkey carts still outnumber cars, but it livens up in April each year.
Eid ul-Fitr
Eid ul-Fitr (Muslim People)
Eid ul-Fitr often abbreviated to Eid, is a three-day Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm). The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the thirty days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. The first day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month Shawwal.
