All Around the City
Family reunions, courting couples, partygoers and moon watchers - the Mid-Autumn Festival could have been made for Macau, with half a dozen BIG events scheduled; not to mention Flash Mob Performances in gardens, squares and open spaces around the city! With the 27th Macau International Fireworks Display Contest running throughout the month, the nights will be ablaze every weekend until China's National Day on October 1. Catch the 5-day Fireworks Carnival, too. And this month, the city celebrates World Tourism Day with the traditional Tray Race, LEGO exhibitions and more. The weather should be perfect for sightseeing on the move – hop on board the 'Step Out, Experience Macau's Communities' Bus Highlight Tour or get a Macau Open Top Bus Tour One-Day Pass.
The 29th Macau International Music Festival Prelude promises something for every musical taste from A Cappella to opera via workshops and lectures, while local bands 'Soler' and 'Blademark' show the musical power of Macau in the Amphitheatre of the Taipa Houses-Museum. More music with Broadway's Band on the Run gigs, while mega stars Bon Jovi set the stage alight, and Kayhan Kalhor & Friends – Persian Music & Beyond transports us to other-worldly realms.
There are lots of street fairs, markets and live performances throughout the Peninsula and the Islands, while culture vultures can further feast on temples, art galleries, pop-up fashion store and lots more – aided and abetted by the Macau Cultural and Creative Map and app introducing the city's cultural and creative spaces. Everything that's going on in the city is at your fingertips – apps, WiFi Go, Audio Guide and Tourism Hotline. Log on – September's sizzling!
