Sunshine Festival

The Sunshine Festival occurs every year on the 5th, 6th and 7th of Sol to celebrate the summer solstice. The festival has great resemblance with the Asian sun festivals, it is the Chinese, Korean and Japanese community that initially organized the festival. Apart from being a cultural festival, it is also for the locals a religious festival. The temples do ceremonies to worship the different deities of the sun.   The festival has existed for more than 100 years but was only held in the Asian district of the arrondissement, it is only since 2068 that it takes place in the whole arrondissement. Especially since the candidate of the Dragon Koi is the mayor of the arrondissement.  

Festival Program

As it starts on the same day as the music festival, the first day's activities are musical with concerts by local and international artists. The major activity of the second day is the parade in the district (the route changes every year) and the last day is dedicated to the stands of local organizations (schools, cultural associations, etc.).
