I support all ‘want to express’.
Design Festa is a celebration of the arts at which anyone regardless of age, nationality, talents or language can exhibit.
Serving as a platform for over 12,000 artists twice a year since its inception in 1994, Design Festa welcomes professionals and amateurs alike.
The single largest art festival in Asia, the combination of performances, international cuisine, artistic expression, enrichment, diversity and passion found at Design Festa is like that of no where else on earth.
The different forms of expression to be found at Design Festa are often unusual, bizarre and never-before-seen, and they all represent the desire to create: a desire we at Design Festa strive to encourage and protect. We hope you will join us in celebrating this form of unbridled expressionism.
Through the Design Festa event, we wish to foster creativity and innovation by connecting visitors with artists, people with people. It is only through bringing people together that we can overcome our individual limitations and bring about a new movement, one free of judgement and censorship.
Whether you are interested in interacting with artists, live music and dance, or just searching for that special something to brighten up your life, you’re sure to find it at Design Festa! We hope to see you there!
