Fertility Festival

Cultural in Lijiang

Held on the 13th day of the third moon, this festival sees Naxi people offering a sacrifice – normally a goat – to their patron saint Sānduǒ (三朵). The biggest celebration takes place at the Sānduǒ Temple (三朵寺; Sānduǒ Sì) on Yùlóng Xuěshān, where there's a big market and much revelry.
