The urban space is given a different meaning from the daily life due to festivals, and the combination of the two creates a festival space that provides visitors with a special urban memory. This study conducted on-site investigation and research on the three-day pilgrimage activity of the traditional Taipei festival, the "Bangka Qingshan Festival". The study analyzed the crowd flow and festival nodes of the pilgrimage during a specific time period as the pattern of urban festival space. The study also used the perspective of urban and architectural design to analyze the plan and facade of the urban space, and explored the street scene and traffic relationship between pedestrians and vehicles at that time. Furthermore, the study conducted a comparative analysis of the daily urban space and non-daily festival space. Through the research on festival space, feedback is provided to the festival planning unit, hoping to incorporate the urban space texture and festival behavior into future urban festival planning to ensure smooth traffic flow and successful activities.
