Most of Beijing’s Christmas bazaars and fairs have all been taking place across the city in various embassies and hotels over the past couple weekends, but The Hutong’s Winter Fayre is the LAST Christmas Bazaar of the year and it’s taking place this Saturday, December 14th from 11AM-3PM.

A culture exchange center, The Hutong is all about connecting Beijingers to local entrepreneurs who have come up with a line of quality, noteworthy products. So if you’ve missed out on the other bazaars around town, this is your last chance to stock up on Christmas presents to bring back home while also treating yourself to some piping hot cups of vin brulé (mulled wine) and other tasty treats.
“Fayre is an old English word describing a fun gathering featuring a range of locally produced goods made and sourced from, and connected to the local community. Our Fayre is a place to catch up with friends and enjoy the holiday spirit, and promises to be a fun day out for the whole family.”
