The Hong Kong Arts Festival (HKAF), launched in 1973, is a major international arts festival committed to enriching the cultural life of the city by presenting annually in February and March leading local and international artists in all genres of the performing arts as well as a diverse range of "PLUS" and educational events.

HKAF is a non-profit organisation. Secured government baseline funding for the Festival in 2017 represents roughly 14% of the HK$120 million budget, with another 9% specially provided by the Government for programmes celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the HKSAR. Around 28% of the Festival’s income comes from the box office, and another 32% comes from sponsorships and donations from corporations, individuals, and charitable foundations. It is anticipated that the remaining 17% will come from the Government’s new matching scheme, which matches income generated through private sector sponsorships and donations.

Your generous support will enable the Festival to continue to bring top international artists to Hong Kong, nurture local talents, encourage cultural exchange and provide more quality arts education events for the younger generation.
