The Macao Arts Festival also engages in outreach programs, visual arts, and more. To keep up with modern times, they have begun integrating virtual reality technology into their activities, which helps broaden the public’s horizon regarding the arts.

Activities and shows occur in various locations around Macau, including the Macao Cultural Centre, Macao Contemporary Art Centre – Navy Yard No. 1, Hall of Iao Hon Activity Centre, The Parisian Theatre, The Venetian Theatre, Broadway Theatre, and several others.

Each year, the festival has a new theme that helps communicate a message. The theme is reflected in various ways throughout the program and activities. Given that there will be hundreds of performances from near and far for all ages to look forward to, this is undoubtedly an event that any art and culture enthusiast won’t want to miss while in Macau. The Cultural Affairs Bureau organises the festival. Booking tickets well in advance is highly recommended.
