Warm Up to JUE: Arts + Music Market will be a full-fledged affair, featuring specialty vendors touting everything from creative handicrafts to the latest fashion designs by local designers. Besides retail, the kick-off event will showcase interactive artwork installations (think live body/face painting demonstrations), delectable food and drink (including a bountiful chocolate fountain) and surprise musical guests (word has it they’ll be performing on a glass stage). Over 50 partners have already confirmed their attendance, including The Bookworm, NLGX Design Store, A Food Affaire, AnyShopStyle.cn, Great Leap Brewing, Shangrila Farms, Nuandao and more. Best of all, entry is free and it runs from 11am to 6pm.
