The 2013 Guangzhou Qiqiao Culture Festival kicked off at the Zhucun Qixi Culture Square at 8 p.m. on August 7 in a drizzle. At the ceremony, naming plaques were presented to the outstanding inheritors of Qiqiao, the Guangzhou Qiqiao Culture Museum was dedicated, and a come-of-age rite was performed for local children.

Amidst intermittent misty rain, the Qiqiao Festival opened with a large-scale musical poem performance entitled "Qiqiao – the Dreams of Girls". A ceremony was also held to mark the opening of the Guangzhou Qiqiao Culture Museum, which is centered on the Ming-dynasty building complex and the Mingde Ancestral Hall at Zhucun. In addition to a new Qiqiao hall near the Mingde Ancestral Hall, the Renke Pan's, Meiyin Pan's and Dichang Zhong's Ancestral Halls have been upgraded to the Qianyun, Jinfeng and Yulu Halls.
