Arts in the Park Mardi Gras

You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation’s annual extravaganza, the Arts in the Park Mardi Gras.

This youth education programme, which uses creative arts to inspire Hong Kong’s next generation, runs for six months and culminates with a huge two-day carnival in November or December. 

Schedule 2022

This year’s theme is all about Charles Dickens and the weekend will be full of dance, musical performances, acrobatics, and theatre shows. Don’t forget the giant puppets — expect a Scrooge or two.

A number of youth groups will be on stage throughout the weekend, showcasing their talent in more than 16 hours of live performances. Attendance is free, and in past years there have been lots of booths where you can try your hand at making masks and puppets, letting you explore your own creative side.

Where is it?

The venue has shifted from Victoria Park to Art Park in the fancy West Kowloon Cultural District.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
