According to the Taichung City Government’s plans, the "2020 Taiwan Lantern Festival" is scheduled to be held at the "2018 Central Taiwan Flora Expo” park’s Houli Horse Ranch, Fengyuan Huludun Park and Shuinan Central Park. The reasons for the selection committee’s decision to choose Taichung is because the Taichung City Government will combine the surrounding counties of Miaoli, Changhua and Nantou and other nearby attractions in planning 1 or 2-day travel itineraries to attract visitors to the area. This can promote regional tourism development and expand tourism benefits. Most of the festival venues will use the "2018 Taiwan International Flora Expo” site. The transportation facilities have been verified. The benefits of the tourism spillover and the efficiency of holding the festival in Taichung are high. The Taichung City Government is preparing to and has promised to raise NT$400 million to host the festival, which is much higher than that of other bidding counties and cities. The selection committee also wanted to choose a location close to major tourism attractions, to maximize the tourism benefits from this festival.

The Hsinchu City Government is planning to hold the "2021 Taiwan Lantern Festival" in the Old City. The Hsinchu City Government will cooperate with the "Pedestrian City Project," which is actively being promoted, to light up the green spaces of the parks in the old city. This will create the best lantern viewing effect and can be directly linked to the local industries to create more tourism benefits. Holding the festival there has the advantages of the ambience of an ancient city. The venue is close to the Hsinchu Train Station, so transportation will be convenient. And there are advantages from the city having a strong technology and glass manufacturing industry. These are reasons why the selection committee favored Hsinchu City.

The Director General of the Tourism Bureau of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, Mr. Chou Yung-hui, said that the Taiwan Lantern Festival is an important national festival event. The bureau is planning to advance international marketing and preparations for the festival. By announcing the host cities for the next two lantern festivals early, there will be sufficient time for making preparations. The host cities of the 31st "2020 Taiwan Lantern Festival" and the 32nd "2021 Taiwan Lantern Festival" were selected partly with the need for regional rotation in mind, and to give counties and cities which have not hosted the Taiwan Lantern Festival a chance to hold the festival and in so doing, promote their local attractions and local industries’ development. The Taiwan Lantern Festival has been held in the south for two consecutive years. In 2020 and 2021, the Taiwan Lantern Festival will be held in the central and northern regions respectively. After the "Taiwan Lantern Festival Selection Review Committee" was organized, experts and scholars were invited to conduct comprehensive evaluations on the competing cities and counties’venues, traffic environment, hospitality, safety management, tourism promotion plans and fundraising capabilities. The results of the committee’s decisions are that the "2020 Taiwan Lantern Festival" will be held in Taichung City and the "2021 Taiwan Lantern Festival" will be held in Hsinchu City, which has not held the Taiwan Lantern Festival before.
 

The "2019 Taiwan Lantern Festival" will be held in Pingtung from February 19th to March 3rd. The closing ceremony will be held on the evening of March 3. At that time, the Taichung City Government team will participate in the closing ceremony and take over the responsibility and glory of hosting next year's Lantern Festival. We hope to see everyone at the "2020 Taiwan Lantern Festival" in Taichung!

 2020、2021年台灣燈會分別與您相約在臺中市及新竹市!

 

 交通部觀光局經過召開「2020台灣燈會」及「2021台灣燈會」主辦縣市評選委員會,結果報經交通部轉行政院於108年1月30日核定:「2020台灣燈會」由臺中市獲選;至於「2021台灣燈會」由未舉辦過台灣燈會的新竹市獲選。

「2020台灣燈會」臺中市政府預定於「2018臺中世界花卉博覽會」園區后里馬場、豐原葫蘆墩公園及水湳中央公園舉辦。 台中世界花卉博覽會於后里、豐原及 外埔3大園區登場,總面積達60.88公頃, 獲得評選委員青睞的原因,除了臺中市政府將結合周邊苗栗、彰化及南投等景點規劃1日或2日遊行程,可帶動區域觀光發展,擴大觀光效益,暨場地大部分沿用「2018台灣國際花卉博覽會」場地,交通配套已驗證之外,另具有觀光外溢效益,舉辦燈會的效益比高;臺中市政府編列及承諾募集經費達4億元,遠高於其他申辦縣市等優勢。評選委員亦建議擇一處距離觀光產業聚落較近的地點舉辦,以發揮觀光效益。

台中市長盧秀燕表示,感謝中央多位首長的促成,強調市府努力爭取國內外重大節慶活動在台中舉行,吸引人潮湧入,大家才能拚經濟;目前市府全已開始展開籌辦工作,相信將會辦得很好。 由於明年為鼠年,是否考慮爭取米老鼠到台中?盧秀燕表示,這是很好的構想,由於台灣燈會屬全國的燈會,主燈主要由交通部規劃設計,台中市為負責主辦的單位,但燈會不會只有主燈,還會有許多活動與展覽,不排除進行接洽。


「2021台灣燈會」新竹市政府預定於舊城區內舉辦舉辦,新竹市政府將配合積極推動中的「步行城市計畫」,於舊城區內各公園綠地布燈,藉由步行串聯可達到最佳的賞燈效果,同時可與在地產業直接連結,創造更高的觀光效益。其具有古城風華,場地臨近新竹車站,交通便利、有科技及玻璃產業加持等優勢,是獲得評選委員青睞的原因。

交通部觀光局周永暉局長表示,台灣燈會為國家重要節慶活動,為期提前國際宣傳行銷及籌辦準備實需,援例一次公布兩年主辦單位,案經通盤檢討,第31屆「2020台灣燈會」及第32屆「2021台灣燈會」主辦縣市評選作業以區域輪辦、未辦過台灣燈會之縣市及促進地方創生(或產業發展)為優先等原則,在台灣燈會已連續兩年於南部舉辦後,2020年及2021年台灣燈會分別於中部及北部舉辦,並以未辦過台灣燈會之縣市及促進地方創生(或產業發展)為優先。經籌組「台灣燈會評選審查委員會」,邀集專家學者就舉辦場地、交通環境、接待能量、安全管理、觀光推廣計畫及經費籌措能力等指標進行綜合評選,結果「2020台灣燈會」由臺中市獲選;「2021台灣燈會」由未舉辦過台灣燈會的新竹市獲選。


「2019台灣燈會」即將於2月19日至3月3日在屏東舉辦,閉幕儀式將於3月3日晚間舉行,屆時臺中市政府團隊將參與閉幕儀式,接下明年燈會主辦的責任與榮耀,請民眾拭目以待,「2020台灣燈會」臺中見!
