Chengdu Flower Festival enjoys a long history of over 1,000 years, dating back to the Tang and the Song Dynasties. The festival, used to be held in the Qingyang Temple, starts on the 15th day in the second month of the lunar calendar and lasts for more than a month.

In the February of Chengdu, the weather is fine, the spring is coming, and all kinds of flowers are blooming. So, the local people say that the 15th day in the second lunar month is the birthday of all flowers. On the day, most of the flower farmers nearby or from afar carry their carefully cultivated flowers to Chengdu for displaying, and many people go out in groups to appreciate the beautiful blooming flowers. Since 1980, the flower festival has been held in the Cultural Park, a wall distance from Qingyang Temple.
