These candy arts both date back thousands of years, with the technique passing down through the generations through apprenticeship programs.

Demonstrations will be held in the China pavilion on select days throughout the Festival so be sure to check the Festival Times Guide for performance times. “The Dragon’s Beard candy is crafted in small batches by Chef Zhang so quantities will be limited. Due to the time-consuming preparation needed for these unique candies, the demonstrations will be on alternating dates.”
