The season of loquat is coming. This year, the 21st Tangqi Loquat Festival will be held in Hangzhou.

During the Loquat Festival, the organizer recommends twenty-four picking points of Tangqi loquat, twenty happy farm houses and eight B&Bs this year.

A concentrated sales area will be staged at the transport block, south of Yunxi Road of Tangqi Town, where 172 exhibition and sales stalls will be set. 

After registration, checking credit records, paying a cash pledge and unified training, loquat farmers of each village and loquat brokers will be given a stall to sell their products. To protect the rights and interests of customers, two check scales are placed in the sales area. Staff from market regulatory department will also be there to make customers feel assured.

Last year, Tangqi loquat started to cooperate with e-commerce. This year, the logistics and packaging has been improved by signing a logistics strategic agreement with Shunfeng Express and EMS. Special offers of loquat are launched in the Online Loquat Festival zone in Alibaba E-Tao. Farmers are encouraged to sell their fruits online and via WeChat.

In addition, after the Festival kicks off, visitors can enjoy operas while tasting fresh loquat. Shaoxing opera club, Peking opera club and other performing arts groups of Tangxi will stage stunning artistic performances. 

At 9:30 am on May 18 and 25 and June 1, Tangqi Story Salon will present three story-telling sessions on legends, cultural history, and folk customs.
