IICFFF (http://www.folkgame.org.tw/) (宜蘭國際童玩藝術節) : A dreamland for the children of Taiwan, a magnet for art from around the world, a garden of culture for the people of ILan. Seven years ago, these were the concepts that launched the first ILan International Childrens Folklore and Folkgame Festival (IICFFF), and over the years the people of Ilan have been making it happen step by step.


Of all Taiwans folk festivals, the IICFFF is probably the best known internationally. Each summer, Dongshan River Water Park (冬山河親水公園) attracts countless children (of all ages!) and the themes of the various years have become for many part of the collective memory. The number of people attending has grown each year since the festival was first held in 1996, surpassing one million visits for the first time in 2002. Not only does the event enrich ILans cultural soil and create business opportunities, it offers a highly successful example which other cities and counties across Taiwan can draw on as they also attempt to bring more culture and art into the life of their communities.
