Boasting a current tally of an astonishing 45 events across 17 days (Mar 7-23), JUE is set to be one of the biggest festivals in the Beijing calendar this year. We at the Beijinger have scoured the immense event listings and compiled our favorite's together to assist you in tackling this festival head-on. Below are our top three picks for Eco-Friendly:

WARM-UP TO JUE MARKET MAR 8
Prepare for the start of the festivities with a ride along to Dongzhimen as the creative spring fair returns. Pick up handicrafts or enjoy the interactive artworks, mouth-watering food, or the many spontaneous gigs throughout the day. 

URBAN RECREATIONAL GARDEN AND BEE-KEEPING WORKSHOPS MAR 9
A double-whammy of environmental enhancement with a bike ride followed by a workshop on urban beekeeping. Learn how to differentiate between real and fake honey products before lessons on setting up an urban beehive.

C!HERE ART CRAWL MAR 15
C!Here guides participants through a series of installations and exhibitions including a “human library.” Other activities include juggling and, if you’re tired of crossing the city on two wheels, you can opt for one by trying out unicycling.

 

You can also find our top picks for Interactive, Film, and Music events listed on our blog.

These events were first listed in our March 2014 issue.
