There's tons to do this long weekend in Beijing, but if there's one event you don't want to miss, its the music / food / cool vendor extravaganza presented at the Feige Vintage Fair.

Over 200 merchants of all manner of hipster goods from old motorcycle jackets to handmade silver jewelry to old movie posters will be on hand, along with food, music, workshops and more.

Each of the vendors at the fair have been hand selected for participation, and organizers promise that this won't simply be Yashow once removed.

It's all going down at Beijing Wukesong Hi Park (don't panic -- it's easy to get to on the Line 1 subway) May 1, May 2 and May 3 from 1pm to 9pm each day. Door tickets are RMB 50.

For vittles, expect Korean fried chicken, veggie hotdogs, salad, beer and wines, coffee, pizza and more. There's also activities scheduled for the duration of the day, including foosball and dart tournaments, leather craft workshops, and areas for kids to kick back while their parents indulge their inner hipster.

There's also a nice lineup of musical acts to round out the fair. Here's the lineup of the acts that will be playing:

Friday, May 1

Chinese classical cellist Xie Qiong (2pm-3pm)

French indie rockers Colt Silvers (3pm-4pm)

British psychedelic folkster Dan Taylor & Friends (4:30pm-5:30pm)
