In 2017, the central government and the State Council of China decided to set up the state-level development area, Xiong an New Area. Located in the city of Baoding in Hebei Province, the new area encircles Beijing, the capital city of China and Tianjin Manicipality. Xiong'an New Area encompasses Xiongxian County, Rongcheng County and Anxin County. As a new development engine and a booster to the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Province, the area is set up to adjust and optimize the urban layout and spatial structure of the three regions

The area has a profound history and splendid culture, where there are 213 items of intangible cultural heritages, three of which are at national level. These items vary in form and size. There are categories of folk literature, folk music, traditional sports recreation and acrobatics, and traditionalopera, etc.

Professor Fan Zhou introduces the unique cultural heritages and cultural phenomena in his Research Report of the Development of Xiong'an New Area.

The intangible cultural heritages of Hebei Province are classified into fi batches of the national level and six batches of the provincial level. The introduction In the book focuses on the items in three countries of Xiong'an, which are divided into many different types, such as folk literature, folk music, traditional opera, and traditional sports, recreation and acrobatics, etc. Representative items of different types in each country are translated and introduced one by one.
