The Nanshan Longevity Cultural Festival honors senior citizens and features art and cultural performances and other assorted activities. The festival has several goals: to promote and develop the traditional virtue of the Chinese nation of respecting and venerating the old, to boost tourism and cultural development for the senior citizens of Nanshan, and to cultivate the brand of the festival.
