Xuhui offers arts, culture for festival

ARTISTIC and cultural flavors are among Xuhui District’s offerings during this year’s annual Shanghai Tourism Festival.

The Fuxing Art Festival has begun at Hengfu (Hengshan-Fuxing Road) Historical and Cultural Area and will continue through October 7.

With themes of music and floating architecture, it features street jazz music, music-themed walking tours, and excursions in search of the Fuxing Cat, the statuesque mascot of the Fuxing Art Festival. People are also invited to paint the cat to add color.

Visitors can enjoy enchanting views in the area amid classic architecture and jazz music during the festival.

The Hengfu area features a cluster of nice old villas, tree-lined sidewalks, chic cafes and restaurants, as well as a tranquil and laid-back atmosphere.

A traditional Chinese opera and cultural festival will begin on Friday and will last for one month.

This celebration will take place on the waterfront along the Huangpu River.

Traditional Chinese operas such as Peking, Yueju, Huju and Pingtan (storytelling and music in the Suzhou dialect) will be performed.

Pathe Villa — where China’s national anthem “March of the Volunteers” was recorded — will host a national anthem exhibition from late September.

Built in 1921, the red villa inside Xujiahui Park once housed Pathe Records studio and was the birthplace of China’s recording industry.

Night tours and 10 exhibitions on the West Bund are scheduled during the autumn cultural and tourism season.
