As the first city to open a sub-event of the China Shanghai International Arts Festival in China, Wuxi has successfully held 7 sessions since 2012. For the first time, this year's event was named "Taihu Culture and Art Season", aiming to highlight local elements, increase the intensity of culture, benefit more people, and make the festival a "season of art exchanges and festivals of the people". By carrying out more cultural activities with both international and local characteristics, the event could further enhance the participation and sense of acquisition of Wuxi citizens.
