Organized by the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC, from its Portuguese acronym), the Tap Siac Craft Market will be held at Tap Siac Square for two consecutive weekends, from Friday to Sunday, from 16 to 18 April and from 23 to 25 April. The opening ceremony will be held at 5:30pm on April 16, with Lily Chen, known as the “HiFi Queen with the Sweet Voice”, invited as the performing guest. All are welcome to participate in a colourful cultural and creative feast.
Themed “life aesthetics”, the Tap Siac Craft Market features a total of 110 booths by cultural and creative practitioners from Mainland China and Macao, showcasing and selling daily necessities that are both aesthetic and practical. In addition, creative food stalls and 37 wonderful music performances by singers from Mainland China and Macao will be held. During the event, 36 creative handicraft workshops will be held, in which experienced creative instructors will teach the participants handicraft skills, allowing the public to explore and enjoy the fun of creation. IC will also set up a booth selling IC’s publications at special discounts and promoting cultural activities. Residents are welcome to visit and purchase their favourite books.
