Date: 03/05/2017, Wednesday
Venue: Red Market and surrounding streets
Time: 11am ~ 5pm
The Red Market Building was completed in June 1936. Covering an area of 1450m2, it was located at the intersection of Avenida Horta e Costa and Avenida Almirante Lacerda. The market was designed by Júlio Alberto Basto and originally named Almirante Lacerda Municipal Market. However, owing to the red bricks used on its exterior, the local residents later called it the "Red Market". Everyday the stores in the market are piled up with fresh meat, seafood, vegetables, groceries, dried food and even flowers and cooked food. The cries of the vendors and their surrounding crowds of customers create a vibrant atmosphere in the market, making it a dynamic city.
Objective: This year the theme of the International Museum Day Carnival is "The Mobile Museum - Red Market • Drunken Dragon Festival". It emphasizes the service objectives of museums merging into the community and expanding their public space. It also encourages painters to record the beauty of Macao with their drawing pens.

The International Council of Museums (ICOM) established International Museum Day in 1977 to encourage public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society.
From America to Oceania, through Europe, Asia and Africa, International Museum Day (IMD) is a special moment for the global museum community. On this day, participating museums interpret an issue affecting cultural organisations. International Museum Day is also a fantastic opportunity for museum professionals to meet their public. Museums are at the heart of the system, institutions that serve and develop society.
Created in 1946, ICOM (International Council of Museums) is the only international organisation representing museums and museum professionals on a global level.
ICOM is an international non-governmental organisation maintaining formal relations with UNESCO. Within the United Nations, ICOM has a consultative status with the Economic and Social Council.
