A Flea Market Bigger Than Artbox Is Happening At Bayfront This Weekend With 500 International Stalls

Tasty food, Instagrammable treats, live music performances, and photo booths

CMYK Event (27)

Artbox 2018 may be over, but it’s time to gear up for another massive Thai flea market extravaganza happening from 20th – 23rd September – the Creative Millennials Youth Karnival (CMYK)!

CMYK Event (10)

Held at the Bayfront Event Space once more, the creative bazaar promises a whopping 500 pop-up stalls from countries like Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, and the Philippines – that’s even larger than the glo-up Artbox 2018 got, which was 400 stalls.

The stalls have no booth numbers on display though, but you can refer to this map to help get around!
