"When is the Shaolin wushu festival held?"

The Shaolin wushu festival is held in Dengfeng and Shaolin,  every other year, usually in the first week of September, of odd number years. So, it will be held next year, September 1st through the 5th, 2001, and then, subsequently, 2003, and so on. Unless they change it. Which, knowing the Chinese, they will. And, knowing the Chinese, they won't tell anybody.
