Traditional “Nadam Fair” Opens in Inner Mongolia

The word “Nadam” in the Mongolian language means recreation, entertainment or games. For more than 700 years, the tradition of “nadam” has taken place, with historical records claiming that Genghis Khan hosted a grand Nadam Fair after his victories. This year’s event, the 23rd Nadam Fair, will take place in Bairin Right Banner of Chifeng City, in northern China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The annual event occurs between July and August, a time in Mongolia when the pastures are at their greenest and the live stock are in their peak, as the events often coincide with prime cattle trading. More than 30,000 local residents and visitors gathered for this year’s Nadam Fair, which features traditional Mongolian activities including archery, wrestling, horse racing, and theatrical performances with ornate costumes.
