During the Spring-and-Autumn Period (770BC-403BC), Liaocheng was an important political and cultural center of Qi State. During the Han Dynasty, Liaocheng belonged to Qingzhou. The construction of the Grand Canal during the Sui and Tang Dynasties (AD581-AD907) boosted the city's economic growth. During AD1289-AD1415, Liaocheng became a commercial city along the Grand Canal.
