Raya pop-ups and events to check out this year

With Hari Raya around the corner, it’s time to plan your weekend by visiting the most exciting pop-ups, events and more.

Several Hari Raya and Ramadan bazaars and pop-ups are being planned for this year, and Malaysians of all races are keen to participate after two years of muted celebrations. Who doesn’t love the spirit of Raya bazaars — buzzing with activity, full of glorious food and other unique offerings?

If you’re looking for some homemade kuih, gifts, a brand-new outfit, or just looking to get into the spirit of Raya, here are some fun events to check out. Be sure to bookmark this page as we continue to add more Raya events during the month of Ramadan in 2022.
