Macao Light Festival 2018 Extended to 20th January03 Jan 2019

Macao Light Festival 2018 - Time Travel in Macao, attracting many residents and visitors since its launch on 2nd December, has been widely and positively covered by the media. In order to enable more residents and visitors to enjoy the illuminations and to prolong its compelling effect as a mega event, the Festival has been extended to 20th January at some locations.

Considering the availability of venues, apart from St. Dominic’s Church, the Camões Garden, Taipa Houses and the Taipa Municipal Market, other locations will continue to stage the ‘Macao Light Festival 2018 - Time Travel in Macao’ from 7:00pm to 10:00pm from 1st to 20th January (the last projection mapping show starts at 9:50pm daily).

The projection mapping show produced by a local team will continue to dazzle the Ruins of St. Paul’s, as will ‘Search for the Taste of Memory’, which will continue lighting up Pak Tai Temple. The Gastronomy Night Market in the square in front of Pak Tai Temple, the Cultural and Creative Night Market, and the Outdoor Local Concert at Anim’Arte NAM VAN are not extended.

During the extended period of the Macao Light Festival, the International Gastronomy Forum, Macao 2019 will be held from 19th to 21st January. Several Forum activities will take place at Anim’Arte NAM VAN, one of the locations covered by this Macao Light Festival. Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) hopes to multiply the effects brought by the mega events, thus creating a brand new experience filled with light plus gastronomic elements for residents and visitors.

At the same time, MGTO aims to showcase the cross-field creativity of Macao as a Creative City of Gastronomy to delegates from worldwide UNESCO Creative Cities of Gastronomy partipating in the Forum, thus helping to transform Macao Light Festival into an international event.
