Featuring more than 560 booths, the carnival is the largest shopping event of its kind in Macao. It provides a free business platform for local SMEs and Sands retailers amid the pandemic period, while offering a fun weekend destination and summer hotspot for local residents and tourists. Providing an ideal shopping and leisure destination for families, the carnival aims to give back to the community by offering the best deals to Macao residents and tourists in order to stimulate domestic consumption and help boost the economy–in support of the Macao SAR government's Consume for the Economy initiative and the e-consumption voucher scheme.

And carnival-goers can rest assured that Sands China is again implementing a series of strict sanitisation and safety measures to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 and safeguard public health.
