ICH Night Market

“Cultural Adventure Through Time” was the theme of ICH Mart this year. The two-day “Mart” and “Night Market” aimed to bridge the traditional craftsmanship as well as intangible cultural heritage with the new generation, to provide opportunities to conserve and revitalise cultural heritage. A series of ICH-themed cultural experiences, game booths, workshops, performances, as well as merchant stalls were offered, unleashing a creative buzz at Tai Kwun and Central Market. Visitors can fully experience Hong Kong’s unique intangible cultural heritage from morning to night.

Located at 1/F Central Market, the Night Market was a one-stop shopping paradise with 19 ICH-themed merchant stalls including traditional delicacies, paper crafting, tea, accessories, perfume, light boxes, scented candles, to name a few.

Another fascinating addition to this year’s Night Market, there were cultural experience booths, artisans to share traditional craftsmanship techniques of rainbow calligraphy, handmade grasshopper, kite, embroidery, dough sculpture, fragrant sachets, Chinese knot as well as bead art during the two-day events. Visitors who registered on-site had a chance to create one of a kind traditional craft one can go home with for free.

The Night Market also features a series of impeccable performances, including fan and ribbon dance from kindergarten students, drum performance from primary students, LED dragon dance and face-changing.
