A-Ma Festival

Held on the 19th day of the Third Moon, the annual A-Ma Festival honours the Goddess of Seafarers who gave Macau its name. According to legend, the deity calmed the raging waters and provided a safe passage for a boat caught out at sea in a ferocious storm. A particularly popular celebration amongst coastal communities, the festival is a time to pay respects and ask for safety whilst at sea.
