The best free events in Beijing this February

The best things to do when you're on a budget

We've compiled a monster lineup of the best free events going on in Beijing every month because we get it – you want to do cool stuff in the capital, but payday is (often) way too far away. And not to toot our own horn (too much), but this list is seriously comprehensive – check out our picks for everything from film screenings, to art exhibitions to music gigs. Some of these events are ongoing, and some of them are one-offs, so make sure you take a peek at anything that catches your eye for all the details.

We also update this page regularly as events are announced, so keep checking back!


Things to do


Drink specials

Yeah, so we know these drink specials aren't exactly free (one lives in hope), but these are all excellent deals for getting a bit more bang-for-your-buck when out drinking. And who doesn't want that?

Art exhibitions


Pub Quizzes

Beijing has plenty of pub quizzes for you to try out, but they're not all created equal. To find out which pub quiz suits you and your mates best, take a look at our handy guide where we run through everything from question difficulty to competition prizes.
