This year, the fifteenth annual Haikou City Madam Xian Cultural Festival will be held in Hainan’s capital city from March 14 - 20. This festival is held in honor of Madam Xian, who played a vital role in uniting and developing Hainan between 513 and 603 AD. She was praised by premier Zhou Enlai as "the most prominent heroine in China's history”.

Festivities will be held at Shengda, Xinpo Town, in the Longhua District of Haikou (龙华区新坡镇盛大), and will include a prayer ceremony, a temple fair, a traditional martial arts show, a Hainan Puppet show, Hainan opera, an agricultural expo, and many more exciting cultural activities.
