Don’t let summer’s departure leave you depressed – the fall brings about exciting new activities around town! Enjoy our pick of the best events for fashion, food and fun this weekend…

Say cheese!
Good cheese can be hard to find in Hong Kong – so it’s the Hullett House Cheese Festival to the rescue, with a whole range of fantastic festivities including a traditional cheese market (with over 80 specialty gourmet European cheeses), cheese workshops, cheese and wine tastings and gourmet cheese dinners! So whether you’re a fan of stinky or soft, want to get adventurous with the Wasabique blend of wasabi and goat cheese, or find the perfect wine to match your fave fromage, you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy!

Shop Des Createurs are presenting a unique opportunity for you to meet the bright new stars of tomorrow’s local fashion scene at their one-day only Pop-Up Shop event.

Blooming lovely
As part of Social Media Week Hong Kong, come get creative at Garden Of Lovely – a giant community garden in the heart of Hong Kong’s concrete jungle. Take some time out for an afternoon of creating and planting in this pop-up laneway garden in Wan Chai, near our new fave coffee spot Amical – so make time for a few cuppas too! This great community event (with a sprinkling of social media of course) will see local artists creating live artwork on-site, symposiums discussing HK’s urban landscape, gardening workshops, live music, interactive art… and tonnes of plasticine to play with too!

When: 23 September, 2pm-8pm
Where: Sun Street, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
How much: Free!

Mid-autumn getaway
Yes… we’re already excited about the looong weekend heading our way next week – but if you really fancy getting away from it all, it’s not too late to jet off! We’ve got some awesome inspiration for dreamy short-haul destinations with our round-ups of Mid-Autumn getaways and stunning spa stays – and there are some great Sassy savings and special offers to be had too!

I do?
The hugely popular Broadway smash hit, My Big Gay Italian Wedding, is hitting the Fringe Club – and it’s set to be fabulous! Andrew and Anthony are getting married, but everyone from their loud Italian mother to jealous ex-boyfriend wants to “help”… with hilarious results. This music-filled feel-good show might be just the thing to give you an autumn pick-me-up!

When: 25-29 September, 8pm
Where: The Underground Theatre, Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Road, Central, Hong Kong
How much: $200-250; www.hkticketing.com, 3128 8288
