The Green Love a’Fair may well be Jakarta’s greenest, outdoor community event.
It is a Sunday market hosted at Kemang’s Como Park, April 30th, with a focus on being healthy, organic and green. With everything from food to fashion, from beer to yoga, and activities for kids and dogs alike – there is nowhere better to be this Sunday in Jakarta.
So here are 7 reasons why you don’t want to miss the Green Love a’Fair…
1) Change up your Sunday routine
Jakarta is an awesome city. But it is often criticised for not having enough outdoor events during the day. Green Love a’Fair mixes the best of Jakarta’s vibrancy, with environmental concepts – right in the heart of town.
2) Something for everyone
Whether you are looking for children’s activities, an outdoor sun session with family or catch up over a beer with a couple of friends, it’s there. Let the children do a mini science experiment, let the young adults chill over a beer, and let the adults just… Relax.
3) A place that is animal-friendly
This is an animal-friendly space that invites all family members including the furry ones. It’s true. It’s really somewhere that has something for everyone.
4) Tunes that you want to listen to
For the vinyl lovers out there, come down and enjoy tunes coming from their very own Laid Back Blues Vinyl Bar. There are music acts running throughout the day, here to play a range of music from house, folk, jazz, world music with even some old classics due to make an appearance. Expect only Good Vibes.
All this excitement is enough to make your belly rumble. It’s just as well there is enough food to go around. With Indonesian favourites, Mexican delights and healthy vegetarian options, you can be sure your hunger will be satisfied with whatever you go for.
For the fashionistas, there will be great and quirky designs, all from local designers. There will also be customised bags, colourful jewellery and natural skincare products. And if you can’t find anything you like, you can learn how to make your own fun things out of recycled materials.
7) Support a green cause for a cleaner Jakarta
In celebration of Earth Day, Green Love a’Fair is promoting a greener and cleaner Jakarta by being plastic free. No plastic bottles, bags, cups or straws. It’s a symbolic effort towards a healthier city. After all, change comes from the community.
Whatever vibe you’re looking for this Sunday, Green Love a’Fair has it in abundance. And with the Earth day celebration combined with a public holiday on Monday, you can be sure that it’s going to have an extra bit of excitement around it.
So get down to Como Park this Sunday and share in the Green Love a’Fair.
