Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

I don't have any firsthand knowledge of the date of the event.

This site says "2016 Mar": http://www.eventaiwan.tw/cal_en/cal_19954#left

But I have doubts about whether the event will take place in March of next year, given what I saw upon searching further. The page linked above gives a phone number, 886-4-23312688#117, but I'm not sure whose phone number it is.

This site says, "每年正月十四、十五 ( 正月十五元宵節為主活動日 )," which seems to mean (using Google Translate) that it's on the fourteenth or fifteenth day of the first lunar month, but more likely on the fifteenth: http://Yanshui.mmhot.tw/?ptype=fck&id=3207
(Please note that autocorrect has changed the "e" in y-e-n-s-h-u-i to "a" in the above URL. After clicking the link, you should be able to get the page by changing the "a" back to "e." Autocorrect has also capitalized the "y," but that doesn't seem to have any effect.)

For 2016, the table on this page, unless I've misread it, seems to match the fourteenth day of the first lunar month with February 21 and the fifteenth day of the first lunar month with February 22:

Richard, in his "Off the Beaten Track" blog, wrote:The main event is usually on the night of the Lantern Festival, which falls on March 5th in 2015; there’s a chance they may have another bash the following day, on Friday – since the festival is extremely popular these days, they seem to run it on two consecutive nights.

Giving the date of the 2016 Lantern Festival in a later post at the link immediately above, Richard wrote:It’s on February 22nd (Monday) in 2016.


That's the best I've been able to come up with so far.

One last thing:

The next to last link on the dark-red band near the top of the page linked below, which page (and site) I guess belongs to the Wumiao Temple, says "聯絡我們," which Google Translate interprets as "Contact Us": http://www.wumiao.idv.tw/
Clicking the "聯絡我們" link should give you some phone numbers, but I'm not sure whether those numbers can help you get your information.

I hope this helps, and if it doesn't, I hope at least that it doesn't cause any harm.

The festival runs for a couple days. The fireworks usually are on the 15th day of the lunar calendar which falls on the 22nd of February in 2016. That is a Monday. Not sure if they would move some activities to the weekend but I haven't seen any mention and I doubt they would change the date of the main fireworks event.
