Yard Banquet

The Yard Banquet is the most characteristic folk banquet on the Chengdu Plain and is also a concentrated embodiment of communal harmony. In rural areas around Chengdu, friends, relatives, and neighbors are invited to a banquet in the event of weddings or funerals. As the banquet is usually held in the yard, it is called the Yard Banquet, or Nine-Bowl Banquet.
