The Sister Rice Festival or the Sister Festival, (other names: Sister Meal Festival, Sisters' Meal Festival) held annually by girls on the 15th day of the third lunar month, is one of the most active festivals of the Miao people in Taijiang, Shibing and Jianhe counties, Guizhou Province. The date of the festival is different according to places. The ceremony is simple, unsophisticated, and distinctive and the Sister Festival in Shidong, Taijiang County is the most typical one. Girls, who are the center of the festival, invite their sweet hearts to eat Sister Rice, play a drum, dance, sing, give keepsakes to each other, and get engaged, which displays the fact of love between the lads and the girls during the course of changing from the matriarchal clan society to the patriarchal clan society. In the festival, there are traditional songs and dances, the dragon dance and bull fighting activities, the interaction between the tranquil and soothing rural life and the modern tours seeking nature are likened to "the festival hidden in the pistil", which is "the oldest oriental Valentine's Day" and is becoming a brilliant landscape in the modern tourism economy in Southwest China.
