The fasting month is almost over, so we all know what that means — Hari Raya Aidilfitri is about to be upon us! As one of the biggest annual celebrations of the year in Malaysia, particularly for Malay Muslims, it makes sense that the preparations for the holiday make for a long, long list. So we won’t judge you if you haven’t completed all of your Hari Raya shopping yet, but don’t you think you’re cutting it a little too close? This upcoming weekend is the eleventh hour, so you better hurry up and complete your shopping!

For all the Johor Bahru peeps, you’re in luck because starting today, Riuh Raya is officially in town! RIUH is a curated platform that brings together retail stores, food vendors, creative workshops, showcases, and even live performances all in one space. From the 5th until 7th of April 2024, Riuh Raya Johor Bahru will be held at the parking lot in front of the Johor Bahru Post Office. Here are all the things you, your friends, and your family members can look forward to at Tambak RIUH Beraya, operating from 3PM to 11PM.

What to Do at Riuh Raya Johor Bahru

1. Last Minute Shopping (Bonus: Support Local!)

Don’t forget to do your last-minute Raya shopping here amidst all the exciting activities — as Hari Raya is only a few days away, it should be priority number one. At Tambak RIUH Beraya, you can find everything on your list and more; from baju kurung, shawls, shoes, handbags, baju melayu, jewellery, perfumes, and the list goes on and on. P.S: you’ll be able to cop your Raya essentials at great prices as most of these brands have announced discounts and free gifts for the earliest customers — what a steal!

The best part about shopping here? You will not only be supporting small, up-and-coming businesses, but you will also be patronising brands run by locals as well! Tambak RIUH Beraya will contain vendors with over 80 amazing local brands and creatives that you haven’t heard of and are missing out on. What better way to celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri than by doing our part for the community?

2. Vibe to Live Performances

Just in case the festivities isn’t ‘riuh’ enough, Tambak RIUH Beraya will also be featuring live performances from twelve incredible acts. The special line-up includes Insomniacks, Empty Page, Aisha Retno, Crinkle Cut, Teman Lelaki, Bihzhu, Airliftz, Judos, Rachel Vanthony, and the Nyala Dance Theatre. Whether you’re a fan of these musicians and performers or otherwise, you will get to sit back and enjoy their lively performances — which will most likely include Hari Raya tunes — until well past sunset. If you find yourself enjoying the music from any of these bands or solo artists, don’t forget to expand your Spotify playlists by adding tracks from their discography. Your streams are precious, use them wisely!

3. Buka Puasa

There’s no separating Malaysians and good food so don’t fret about buka puasa, you can satisfy all your cravings at Tambak RIUH Beraya. Choose which cuisine you’d like to break your fast with (or for your dinner if you’re not fasting) from almost 20 different F&B vendors. Choices includes wagyu skewers, takoyaki, burgers and fries, pasta, chicken, coffee, desserts, fresh fruit juices, smoothies, and so much more. After a hectic afternoon filled with last-minute shopping, sit down with your food and beverage of choice while being serenaded by live performers. If that’s not a good time, we don’t know what is.
