Fabulous events continue throughout November in Macau. The most internationally prestigious event on the annual calendar must be the 61st Macau Grand Prix, held from 13th to 16th November. It will comprise seven competitions: the F3, FIA World Touring Car Championship, Motorcycle Grand Prix, Macau GT Cup, Macau Touring Car Cup, Macau Road Sport Challenge, and China Grand Prix, a new event promoted and co-hosted by the Automobile Associations of Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
In terms of art and performances, the 2014 Macau Fringe Festival tops the list. In last year’s
16-day Festival, the organiser prepared 45 programmes, 69 performances in total, including 12 shows featuring dance, drama, street arts, paintings, music and so on. It committed to letting local artists and residents participate in various activities throughout the city by bringing a variety of interesting and creative performances into communities. Every year, the main attraction of the Fringe Festival – the Fringe Parade - meanders from the Ruins of St. Paul’s to Leal Senado Square.
In addition, the 14th Macau Food Festival will be held in Sai Van Lake Square from the 7th to
23rd November. The organiser is planning to specially create a Japanese Village populated by food and beverage merchants from Kansai, with traditional Japanese performances further enhancing the atmosphere.
In addition to events organized by the government, MGM Macau will host the International Lion Dance Championship on the 8th and 9th November. The Championship features 24 lion dance troupes from different countries and regions who will battle it out to take home the grand prize.
