The Nine Emperor Gods Festival (Chinese: 九皇爺Jiu Wang Ye ) is a nine-day Chinese celebration observed primarily in Southeast Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, also Riau Islands.

The nine emperors gods actually refers to the " Jiu Huang Da Di 九皇大帝" (The Nine Great Emperors) in the Daoist deities system (Daoist Patheon).
