Standard Chartered Arts in the Park 2023
On 2 and 3 December, Standard Chartered Arts in the Park – Hong Kong’s iconic annual outdoor youth arts festival and puppet parade – returns to Victoria Park, Causeway Bay! Join us for a fun The Carnival of the Animals-themed festival showcasing colourful creatures from around the world and all kinds of art styles! Highlights include five magical giant puppets – a pufferfish covered with bright Mexican-inspired patterns, a gorilla in colours inspired by African tribal art, a flamingo decorated with Asian paper folk art designs, a metallic cyberpunk-style mantis and a monochromatic flying dinosaur fossil – plus breathtaking costumed stilt walkers and a whole lot more!
Taking inspiration from Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals, the two-day, free-of-charge event features spectacular giant puppet parade, stage performances, interactive art stalls, storytelling, African drum jamming, an exhibition of 6,000 artworks, and a meet-and-greet session with giant puppets. Mark the dates in your diary and head over for a spectacular weekend of visual and sensorial art experiences for all ages!
