“Gathering” or Yaji is an ancient Chinese term used when scholars gather together for a scholarly discussion. Since 2012, the Chinese Cultural Centre and the Vancouver Hanfu Culture Society have combined to host many traditional, Chinese cultural events and ceremonies, including: the Ceremony of Passage to Adulthood, the Chinese Love Festival “QiXi” and more. The Jade Gathering will once again bring back olden Chinese traditions, so that everyone may have the chance to celebrate and experience this unique event.
