Hong Kong’s newest community hotspot, Quarryside, will host a free weekend-long festival from August 25-27 that will give visitors the chance to participate in silent disco events, watch live music shows, attend workshops, and take part in dance classes.
The event, called Quarryside Summer Fest, is free to enter and, while the activities are not ticketed, some require pre-registration. The festival is being held to support Happy Hong Kong, a government-led initiative to give Hongkongers and residents to the city new recreational experiences.
The major highlights of the three-day event are the Summer Silent Disco Party, at which visitors will get to dance to music they will hear over headphones. There will also be a Silent Disco x Mindfulness event, as well as a Silent Disco x Yoga session, during which participants will listen to guidance from an instructor over wireless headphones.
Visitors who want to pick up new culinary skills can take part in the Peanut Brittles Making Workshop or the Coffee Sensory Journey, while those with an inclination for arts and crafts can enter a Theatre Puppet-Making Workshop or Food Waste Jewellery Upcycling class.
There will also be a Swinging’ Out Summer Tasting Class, which will give participants the chance to learn African dance and European ballroom dancing. Those who want a unique theatre experience can check out a show inspired by the German marine conservation picture book Ocean Adventure.
In addition, there will also be a gourmet fiesta in the areas around Quarryside during which more than 40 F&B outlets will give customers discounts on their offerings.
