Christmas on a Great Street – 2017/2018 Dates, Orchard Road Singapore

Christmas on a Great Street covers around 3kms of Orchard Road, starting at Tanglin Mall and travelling right up to Plaza Singapura. The best time to visit Orchard Road during this time is at night, when you will be treated to spectacular lighting shows and heaps of interactive Christmas themed displays. There will also be roving performers and pop-up stores selling food and drink and other Christmas goods.

The festival will kick off with a Light Up Ceremony at 7pm on Saturday the 11th of November 2017 where the roads are closed and thousands of people converge on Orchard Road to witness the street lit up for the very first time. Buildings will compete for the best decorations, so choose your favourite as they do their best win your vote!

Christmas music will be playing all along Orchard Road and there will be a fun atmosphere with carnival games and live music and performances from local artists. Come and play in ‘snow’ at Tanglin Mall and make sure to check out the giant Christmas tree at ION Orchard.

Christmas on a Great Street is a great, family friendly festival to attend during your visit to Singapore. You can get to Orchard Road by taking the MRT on the north/south, north/east or central line and alighting at Dhoby Ghaut station.
