About French May About French May

An Iconic Part of Hong Kong’s Cultural Scene

Established in 1993, French May is one of the largest cultural events in Asia. With more than 100 programmes presented across two months, it has become an iconic part of Hong Kong's cultural scene that reaches over 350 thousand visitors each year. The objectives of French May are to touch everything, to be everywhere and for everyone. 

To touch everything by showcasing the most diversified art forms: from heritage and contemporary arts, paintings and design, to classical music and contemporary dance dance, cinema and puppets. 

To be everywhere by bringing performances to various venues and districts, including the unusual and unexpected: from cultural centres and shopping malls to public spaces, the racecourse and Victoria Harbour. 

For everyone, because the Festival aims to reach out to the entire community by developing educational programmes, talks, guided tours, workshops and masterclasses, including those that directly benefit the young and less privileged. 

For 30 years, French May has been both truly international and distinctly local and wishes to contribute to the unique appeal of Asia's World City. The French May Arts Festival received the “Gold Award for Arts Promotion 2008” from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.
