The Hong Kong Arts Festival is a non-profit organization. We need your support to continue presenting top quality international and local programmes to the Hong Kong community!

The Hong Kong Arts Festival, 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, a diverse range of “PLUS” activities, and year-round arts education programmes. Your contribution to the Festival Donation Scheme will help to provide funding for areas that need the most support.
