The Tai Chi Gala will take place from May 30th to June 1st in Albany, New York, United States. It is a continuation of the event that Jou Tsung Hwa had originally started, which he called the “Zhang San Feng Festival”, named in honor of the legendary (and some say mythical) founder of Tai Chi Chuan. The original event was held on the Tai Chi Farm in Warwick, New York, which was founded by Jou Tsung Hwa.
The Tai Chi Gala, as did the Zhang San Feng Festival, attracts Internal Martial Arts enthusiasts from all over the North America and the world. It is a time to learn, teach, and share their love of the arts, and show their respect for Jou Tsung Hwa, Zhang San Feng, and the history of the Internal Arts.

The Gala will hold workshops throughout the event, and feature instructors from the Internal Martial Arts such as Loretta Wollering, Jianye Jiang, Ren-Gang Wang, Donald Wong, Dr. John Painter, Gene Ching, and others. Over the years since the original festival began, the event has seen notable instructors of the Internal Arts such as Dr. Yang Jwing Ming, William. C.C. Chen, Henry Look, Ren Guangyi, B.P. Chan, T. K. Shih, Fong Ha, and Tchoung Ta Tchen.
