The village is a major distribution and promotion area of several provincial intangible cultural heritage items, including Shanxi fahua (glazed porcelain) making, Yangquan Wenya Drum, and the Sanquan Temple Fair.
In recent years, Sanquan has carried out a variety of activities to pass down and promote its local unique culture, creating a strong cultural atmosphere.
