AIA Carnival

11:00am – 11:00pm
HK$85.00 – HK$150.00

The carnival is not taking place this year (dec ’21 – feb ’22).

Every winter the Central Harbourfront Event Space hosts a two-month-long family-friendly carnival, complete with rides, games, performers, and huge plush toys to be won.

A popular day out for families on Christmas and New Year holidays, the carnival features traditional rides like a carousel, chair swings, giant slides, bouncy castles, and even an outdoor ice rink for skating!

The carnival requires an entry ticket, and tokens for the games and rides. Adult tickets are HK$120.00, which includes 10 tokens, while kids get in for HK$85.00 with 7 tokens. But since you’re probably going to need a lot of tokens to try the different games and rides, you may want to upgrade to the Token Bundle, or the VIP Flexi ticket, which includes two drinks at the Carnival’s VIP lounge.

Tickets can be booked online through the organiser’s website, or bought at the entry gates.

There’s also the incredible Great Circus of Europe, performing under the big top for 55 minutes of non-stop fun and entertainment. Tickets to see the Circus range from HK$150.00 to HK$400.00 for VIP Ringside seats.

Nearby Attractions

The Central Harbourfront Event Space is right next to the Hong Kong Observation Wheel, the Star Ferry Pier, and the Hong Kong Maritime Museum. It is also a few minutes’ walk to nearby Central attractions such as the Peak Tram and the Mid Levels Escalator. Be sure to spend some time enjoying the beautiful harbour views and exploring all that Central has to offer.

This event was formerly know as the AIA Great European Carnival, but the name was shortened in 2018.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
