There used to be one, unfortunately it seems to no longer be online. These are the people who maintained it, and it's still listed on their site.

Pics and video of this year's event from someone a lot smarter than cf and me. :lol:
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

I don't know if it's what Zla'od was looking for, but I found this calendar on Internet Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/200906050352 ... endar.aspx

Here's the Internet Archive's saved page containing an article entitled "Ching Shan Wang Ritual at Meng Chia": http://web.archive.org/web/201001101533 ... &Control=3

Here are some pics: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dans180/se ... 163952358/

And the temple was seriously damaged by fire last Tuesday.

Yes that is awful about the fire. I was just there last month filming. Such as beautiful little temple.

I think the article said the festival started tonight. Wish I could go.

Well it's probably the first time that the TT has reported a festival BEFORE it happened so I understand how you were thrown off.
