Singapore Events

Due to its rich multicultural heritage, Singapore events are many and wide-ranging. From religious celebrations to music and film festivals Singapore has it all.

Most events in Singapore focus on family, tradition, myths or religion. At these times, Marina Bay and the ethnic temples and quarters of Chinatown, Little India and Geylang come alive.

2021 / 2022 Singapore Events, Expo & Festival Dates Calendar




Due to a large number of Chinese people living in Singapore, there are a number of Chinese celebrations held in Singapore. The Chinese New Year is one of the biggest celebrations on the event calendar. Generally celebrated in January or February each year (the date fluctuates), this event marks the transition from summer to winter. If you are in Singapore during the Chinese New Year, make sure to check out some of the events planned during this time as you will learn so much about the rich Chinese culture that continues to influence Singapore today.

The Dragon Boat Festival represents the culture of the people and the Chinese influence over Singapore’s past. As over seventy percent of the population in Singapore is Chinese, it is small wonder then that most Chinese festivals are celebrated with much fervour in this country.

Singapore’s National Day is held each year on the 9th of August in memory of Singapore’s freedom from Malaysia in 1965. During this day, there is a National Parade, a speech from the Prime Minister of Singapore and a huge fireworks display.

The Singapore Night Festival is an annual street festival held over two weekends celebrating the arts and Singapore’s rich cultural heritage. The festival is a massive street party centred around an artistic extravaganza of fun and entertainment. There is heaps to see and do including musical performances, improvisational theatre, film screenings, roving street performers, colourful building-sized light installations, dance, aerial performances, demonstrations of magic and illusion and cultural exhibitions.

With fashion shows, the Singapore Grand Prix and many outdoor festivals, there is always something to see and do in Singapore.
