Festive Happenings


Chinese New Year
The most celebrated festival in the Chinese calendar, be treated to a fun-filled extravaganza of lights, sights and sounds at Marina Bay River Hongbao or embark on a festive adventure of epicurean Chinese delights and traditional street bazaar along Chinatown Street!

Chingay Parade
From the main parade site to the heartlands, this street extravaganza epitomises Singapore’s unique multicultural personality with a parade of dazzling floats, dancing dragons and stilt walkers. Today, the Chingay Parade is the largest street performance and float parade in Asia that also offers visitors a peek at what makes this charming city uniquely Singapore.

Although there is no real snow on this sunny island, Christmas is still the most magical time of the year when friends and family gather for some massive holiday partying and feasting. Be sure not to miss the colourful spectacle of the yearly Christmas light-up along the famous shopping belt on Orchard Road, where you can truly soak in the festive mood with precinct-wide shopping promotions and other exciting events!

The festival of lights lives up to its name by transforming the Little India district into a vibrant bazaar filled with bright colours, tasty foods and authentic traditions. Experience the cultural festivities by getting an intricately patterned henna tattoo or sampling delicious curry with crispy 'roti prata' (dough flat bread) along the streets.

Hari Raya Aidilfitri
Marking the end of a month-long fasting, the Muslim community in Singapore comes together for a joyous celebration of feasting and seeking forgiveness. Don’t forget to swing by Geylang Serai Bazaar, the heart of the celebrations, for a taste of local Malay delights and culture!

Marina Bay Singapore Countdown
Welcome the New Year on a high with an array of live performances as well as a spectacular display of fireworks that will illuminate Singapore’s iconic cityscape at the stroke of midnight. There will also be a wave of “wishing spheres” to be set afloat at the Bay of Hope and Light, as a symbol of our dreams and hopes for the New Year!

Singapore National Day
Commemorating our independence since 1965, this significant milestone is celebrated yearly with a spectacular National Day parade featuring military processions, multi-cultural performances and a breathtaking fireworks finale. With fluttering Singapore flags filling up every corner of our little island, you will certainly feel like one of us!
