Hong Kong in March means warmer temperatures and blooming sakura flowers and cherry blossoms, so it is safe to say that it’s time to make the most of the changing season. What better way to enjoy Hong Kong in March than by checking out some of the events happening across the city. Make sure to save the dates, as we’re listing some of the most exciting events to look out for this March in Hong Kong.
The Murray Sunday Farmers Market
This one is for all the health nuts and home cooks out there. Celebrate the spring season with the debut of the Murray Sunday Farmer’s Market. Head over to The Arches at The Murray Hong Kong to discover fresh-off-the-farm local produce, organic ingredients, baked goods and artisan pieces to promote sustainable agriculture. The Murray Sunday Farmer’s Market will be open every Sunday this March from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Ernest Chang’s “Bling Dynasty"
The Stallery and L’Epicerie Fine HK present Hong Kong-based artist Ernest Chang’s newest works in his series “Bling Dynasty.” His recent series uses recognizable images from global pop and consumer cultures – such as characters from well-known animated sitcoms like “South Park,” “Family Guy,” “Rick and Morty” and video games – and iconic logos from luxury fashion brands as central motifs within compositions that evoke traditional Chinese artistic mediums, techniques and iconography of Tang and Han Dynasty paintings. By combining aesthetic and iconic motifs drawn from Western and Chinese culture and traditions, Chang’s work serves as a commentary on the dominating influence of Chinese consumer power on the global marketplace. “Bling Dynasty” is open at The Stallery until April 4 every Wednesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
“The Wanderlust” by Kim Yong-oh
Until March 21, Gallery by the Harbour is hosting Korean-based artist Kim Yong-oh’s exhibition “The Wanderlust” detailing his globe-trotting exploration of 69 countries over a 723-day journey. In a time when many of us are missing travel, Yong-oh hopes to remind us of happy travel memories by allowing viewers to live vicariously through him on his journey across Russia, Africa, Latin America, Europe and Asia. The exhibition runs from March 15-21, starting at 11 a.m.
Taste of Hong Kong
Calling all foodies! Hosted at the Central Harbourfront Event Space, the annual Taste Hong Kong offers four days (March 21-24) of eating, drinking and entertainment. This gastronomical celebration features a diverse range of cuisines from 12 of Hong Kong’s best restaurants and master chefs. Each will serve four dishes, including a dish that the establishment is well known for and an exclusive “Icon Dish” that was specially curated for the event. There are a variety of tickets to choose from, however, all tickets include access to all the restaurants – it simply depends on how much you want to indulge. Dishes start HK$50, with some Icon Dishes going up to HK$140. The event will also have live demonstrations by chefs, wine and whiskey tastings, cocktail pairings, live music and a Gourmet Market selling goods from several local artisan producers.
