Aug. 1, 1927 marked the birth of a new armed force independently led by the CPC.

The 5th Nanchang International Military Tattoo is a part of the activities to honor the history and celebrate this anniversary.

The festival is consisted of the opening ceremony and parade performances, a military music evening party, a special concert, military music carnival culture performances, the closing ceremony, and a military music party. Organizers estimate that the six-day event will attract more than 200,000 attendees.
