The temple fair (miào huì 庙会) is a kind of social activity in China. Temple Fairs in China originated around 1000AD when people offered sacrifices to the village god, which later gradually evolved into a marketplace for people to exchange products and a place for cultural performance. Temple fairs in China had a unique status in ordinary people’s life. It is the time to worship gods, pray for blessings. It is also a great time to have fun. All the traditional shows went on at  temple fairs: talk shows (xiàng sheng 相声), banner shows (wǔ qí 舞旗), kungfu shows (wǔ shù 武术), and lion shows (wǔ shī 舞狮).
