All Around the City

National Day Celebrations starting October 1 promise to put the golden in Golden Week, while the 26th Macau International Fireworks Display Contest culminates in a crescendo of light, sound and music on the same evening. The 28th Macau International Music Festival is packed with international performances, many of which will be showcased in UNESCO-listed World Heritage venues, featuring jazz to Broadway to chamber music, while the 17th Lusofonia Festival brings Portuguese-speaking countries together from around the globe in a festive, party atmosphere.

Halloween hi-jinx is also on the agenda, with a parade and Zombie Walk, while Government Headquarters Open Day is an annual opportunity to see inside the levers of power. The 45th Caritas Macau Charity Bazaar is an opportunity to help those in need, whilst having fun.

Thought you really knew Macau? Step Out, Experience Macau's Communities is a great way to experience the city's 'secret' districts by exploring little gems off the beaten track. Meanwhile, bargain hunters won't want to miss the Taipa Flea Market, 5 Outubro Street Art Fair, and Sun Never Left community street-level activities.

Leal Senado Building's 20-minute concerts continue to enliven downtown Macau, while the Evening Concert series puts more magic in the air in the Taipa Houses-Museum Amphitheatre. Looking for easy-going piano lounge music? A Night with Piano at the Gallery is the perfect way to round off an evening on the famous Cotai Strip, which is bursting with concerts, exhibitions, expos, dining and shopping. Meanwhile, culture vultures are spoiled for dramatic choice of theatre options showing at the Macau Cultural Centre.

Art lovers are well-served, too, with the Collective Exhibition of Macau Artists, Calendar Illustrations by Guan Huinong, and Fu Zhiming's Painting on Paper Series all speak to the soul, while the Shandong Province Acrobatic Troupe puts a new spin on a traditional tale.

If you're just here for the weekend, it wouldn't be complete without enjoying spectacular performances of martial arts, dragon dances, lion dances, Portuguese dancing, etc, in some of the city's beautiful squares. 'Experience Macau' app, 'Macau Cultural Map' app, 'WiFi Go', the audio guide, free guided tours and Macau budget hotels website make it easier than ever to get around the city that never sleeps. You're just an app away from culture, dining, entertainment - and pure relaxation!
