On this International Museum Day, local associations taught participants indigo dyeing, cabbage pickling, pineapple soy sauce brewing, Hakka openwork window carving, and rice milling, among a total of 40 activities.

Attendants also had the opportunity to learn how to prepare dried cabbage. Freshly picked cabbage is sundried, torn into wedges, pickled for softening, kneaded, placed inside a glass container, and finally, sealed for fermentation. Dried cabbage is commonly used in Hakka villages to accompany stir-fried shredded meat, fried eggs, stew meat, pork ribs soup, and so forth. People were able to learn the everyday wisdom of villagers and experience local warmth with their own two hands. The Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Corporation (TTL) and Taiwan Banana Research Institute were also invited to participate. To commemorate its 100th anniversary, TTL's Pingtung Distillery collaborated with Liugdui Hakka Cultural Park to teach visitors how to make sake kasu soap.
