New Taipei City Hakka Yimin Fest
Since the 15th year of Daoguang (1835), Taiwan has held the Spring and Autumn Festivals and the Yimin Festival on the Lunar and July. It is the most magnificent, most valued, and most Hakka-like ritual event in the area governed by the Yimin Temples. The characteristic "bongfan" prays, which can better show the close relationship between Yimin Ye and Hakka people; Bongfan is called "Fengyu" in written materials. This custom of Bongfan, which lasted more than 200 years, originated from Yimin. Before the Lord ’s expedition, the villagers would carry food and drink to strengthen the momentum, and at the same time, they would provide food and drink to comfort them during the battle. After the war, the sacrifice to the temple building of the righteous people who died was continued to this day. The custom is to reflect on the past, which is undoubtedly the best symbol of the close integration of Yimin Ye and the Hakkas.
Since "Yimin Ye" has become the patron saint of the Hakkas, and the Hakkas living in the Greater Taipei area, if it is very inconvenient to return to their hometown to worship each year, the Hakkas in the Greater Taipei area will welcome Hsinchu County since Lord Yimin of Xinpu went north to accept the worship of the Lubei villagers and bless the Hakkas who left their homes.
