After the Unexpected Postponement, JUE Wraps Up Another Great Year with its Ever Popular JUE Market
Back in its 3rd year, JUE Market was originally scheduled to take place at the off-set of the art and music festival, but due to unexpected circumstances, they had to postpone their most popular event of the festival to coincide with their closing party.
Wrapping up all the elements of JUE, this market day features some of Beijing’s most beloved specialty vendors ranging from fantastic home-brewed craft beer by Jing A Beer and Great Leap Brewing, savory bites by Two Guys and A Pie, Yunnan by Sue Zhou’s Hani Gejiu, Andy’s Craft Sausages, and delectable desserts by both Sweet Tooth Bakery and Fat Bunny Bakery.
Food and beverages aside, JUE Market will also showcase plenty of crafty vendors selling everything from creative handi-crafts to this year’s newest fashion designs along with a variety of interactive artworks, installations, film screenings, and live musical performances throughout the day.

Chu Yibing’s China Cello Philharmonic Returns to Time Out’s Sunday Salon at The Bookworm
Time Out Beijing’s Sunday Salons are some of the most exceptional Beijing events around town that are made available to the public and I consider myself among the few, highly privileged to have already attended a handful of these Sunday Salons.
Always held on a Sunday evening around 7:30PM, Time Out has somehow managed to arrange for incredibly talented Classical musicians to come to The Bookworm and play extracts from their music in an intimate setting, followed by an opportunity to discuss their inspirations behind the music together with their audience. You’d normally only be have to listen to these musicians perform in a massive concert hall among an audience of thousands. This is an incredibly rare chance to not only hear these incredibly talented and famous musicians right in front of your face, but you can also meet them, shake their hands and ask them questions directly to better understand them, their background and experience as professional musicians who are invited to perform all over the world.
“This is a unique opportunity to listen to the great musicians from China and ask them questions directly about their incredible talents.” - Nancy Pellegrini, Time Out BJ & SH’s Classical & Performance Editor
