1. Browse and shop the City Showcase Market that will bring together 190 handpicked emerging artisans, artists, fashion and jewellery designers.

2. Eat delicious food via a wide selection of street vendors (British, Thai, Italian, American, etc.) and Farmer’s Market.

3. Play games like giant Jenga and croquet with your family and friends.

4. Listen to live music and entertainment from over 50 artists, bands and musicians from across the musical spectrum.
