The town of Sanyi situated in the southern part of Miaoli County is known internationally as the center of wood carving in Taiwan. The town's wood-carving industry originated back in the 1920s and, in those days, concentrated on oddly shaped pieces of natural wood. The golden age of wood carving in the area came in the 1970s, when most of the products were exported. Facing the recession in 1980s due to the energy crisis worldwide, and this gave the wood-carving industry the opportunity to think how to elevate their products from commodities to artworks. The establishment of the Museum of Wood Sculpture in 1995 prompted numerous wood carvers from other places to gravitate to Sanyi and develop their own styles of artistic creation, and Sanyi became known as a specialized wood-carving area and won the name of "Wood-Carving Town".

The Sanyi Wood-Carving Festival has been held in May yearly since 1990 and attracted visitors from all over the country. Through the participation of local wood-carving artists and the exchange of ideas and techniques, their unique styles have been developed and even known in international circles, and this also leads to the development of cultural and tourism resources. The activities include wood-carving exhibition, color wood-carving DIY, wood-carving market, a series of Hakka life and culture shows, etc.
