Inter-island Festival is an art and lifestyle festival dedicated to the inter-island ferry and the outer islands.

Planned for October, 2nd-4th 2020, the Festival will bring together the outer islands of Peng Chau, Cheung Chau and Lantau Island’s Mui Wo and Chi Ma Wan, with a variety of activities spanning from urban/rural cultures, environmental conservation, to design and crafts.

The Festival aims to highlight the distinct environments, communities, histories and concerns of these places, to promote and protect their shared cultures and raise awareness of the invaluable nature Hong Kong possesses. It also hopes to foster connections and exchange between these outposts.

Providing a down-to-earth, accessible and playful perspective on insular life, these events will offer the public a chance to understand and be inspired by the richness of the islands’ life.
