Whether you are drawn to the drama of a street parade, the spirituality of a prayer ritual or the beauty of an avant-garde theatre performance, there is bound to be an event around the corner waiting to be experienced.

Weekend markets abound in Penang. Vendors are an assorted mix of small business owners to passionate hobbyists presenting their wares and services to a curious crowd. Markets like Occupy Beach Street, Artisan Market on Pitt Street and Sunday Pop Up Market at Hin Bus Depot are great places to buy local, handmade products and meet the individuals producing them face-to-face. There are usually street performances, workshops or activities during these markets that provide opportunities for participants to interact, learn something or simply have fun.

Ever think sports event are for professionals only? The Asia Pacific Masters Games may sound intimidating but is really an event that has a variety of sports for a wide age group. Participants get to choose the nature of the event they get involve in, whether it is competitive, recreational or social. Elsewhere, don’t miss out on Penang’s annual Dragon Boat Festival which is as much a display of physical strength as it is a cultural spectacle.

Penang Institute, the state government’s policy think tank frequently holds forums, panels and the occasional book launch for those that crave intellectual stimulation from discussions that range of inclusive politics to Southeast Asian photography.
