All the excitement, colour and fascination of Macau will be on show on the October 15-16 weekend when the curtain is raised on the inaugural Macau Festival 2011 in Sydney’s Darling Harbour.
Organised by the Macau Government Tourist Office (Australia and New Zealand), the event will feature on stage a free program of contemporary and traditional Portuguese dance, Lion dancing, song and music throughout the two days. There will also be a host of free activities for children as well as activities for adults, and plenty of Portuguese and Chinese food to satisfy hearty appetites.
Coinciding with the festival will be a Macau Food Week at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney from October 14-21.
The hotel’s restaurant Kable’s will offer a special traditional Macanese menu for both lunch and dinner throughout Food Week, the menu featuring a selection of traditional dishes including the famous Macanese Egg Tarts and African chicken. Macanese food is best described as a combination of Portuguese, Chinese, Indian and African cuisine.
Adding to the authenticity of the experience, we are pleased to welcome two guest chefs from our sister property, Four Seasons Hotel Macau, Gary Wong and Alex Lim, who will be preparing the Macanese dishes throughout the week.
