The 2019 traditional Yushu horse racing festival opened in China’s northwest Qinghai province on Thursday. This year’s event will also be celebrated with the 4th Snowland Gesar cultural festival and the three-river-source water culture festival. The three festivals will feature singing and dancing, costumes, tents, equestrianism, yak races, folk sports, forum, cultural tourism, trade and other activities. 

The five-day event will highlight Yushu's cultural characteristics, create a better tourist experience, further inherit national and folk cultures, enhance the influence of the festival itself, and promote the coordinated, balanced and development of the regional cultural tourism industry.

The horse racing event was listed in the second batch of the national intangible cultural heritage list in June 2008.
