Beat the Summer Heat at the Hoegaarden Summerfest 2019 at Central Harbourfront.
Hong Kong is gearing up to a summerfest with authentic Belgian wheat beer brand Hoegaarden and its unique “Gaarden” concept. This year, for the second time, Hoegaarden links up with local handicraft platform Think of a Style and Central Venue Management (CVM) to bring back the Gaarden at the iconic “Think of a Market @SummerFest” – marking the city’s largest handicraft marketplace. Get ready to visit the Central Harbourfront from 23rd to 25th August for the ultimate summer experience. The “gaarden” will be filled with art, design and creative vibes with nature and sustainability at the heart of its campaign.
Hosted by CVM, SummerFest at Central Harbourfront offers a variety of summer activities free for the public to enjoy throughout July to August. This year, the three-day Think of a Market event will wrap up SummerFest with a bang. Led by Think of a Style, the marketplace will assemble over 300 talented artisans and handicraft designers from Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan selling handmade goods from jewellery and clothing to flowers and candles. In addition to fun DIY workshops, visitors can bask in the outdoor fun with a whole new Hoegaarden experience.
“Think of a Style” is a hub for culture, art and design, providing a platform for local and global artisans to showcase their creativity. This year, “Think of a Style” brings over 300 handicraft talents to the marketplace, including a number of key artisans from Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Mainland China, Macau and Thailand.
