The History of the National Day Celebration

National Day in China is a holiday that has been celebrated in some form since the Western Jin dynasty in the early 3rd century AD.

The October 1st is China's National Day which is to commemorate the founding of People’s Republic of China in 1949. There are usually many activities arranged in Tian'anmen Square in Beijing to celebrate that day. See the upcoming 2019 Beijing Tian'anmen Military Parade



National Day Celebrations/Activities

In recent years, the National Day holidays were extended to one week. It is like the US 4th of July holidays, but it is much longer.


The National Day Flag Raising Ceremony

Tian’anmen Square: On October 1, there is a special flag raising ceremony. The square is decorated festively with flags and portraits. Exactly at sunrise, uniformed troops march out to start the flag raising ceremony.

To watch it, you'll need to get there at least about 10 minutes before then. The entire ceremony lasts only 3 minutes. Sometimes crowds of thousands are there on October 1, but sometimes in bad weather, only a small crowd gathers.

To get into the plaza, you have to go through a security check. Your baggage will be checked, and it is best to bring little with you.
