Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Society alone organized the festival, in which Hakka culture was introduced to the Canadian public for the first time in order to show that Taiwan indeed is also a multicultural society. Other programs included exhibitions of pottery art from Ying-Ko, Taiwan, which generated lots of enthusiasm. Later that year, the 1998 Taiwanese Cultural Festival was nominated for a star award in the category of Best Cultural Event by the Second Annual Canadian Event Industry Award. More than 5,000 participants were attracted to the various performances and exhibits.
