Please note that the Chingay Parade event is going to be virtual again in 2022
The Chingay Parade is without doubt one of the most important events in Singapore, and it’s when street floats, clowns, dancers, acrobats, jugglers and many other performers can be seen in the celebration of the Chinese New Year.
The origin of the parade is from China, where processions were made in honour of the Lunar New Year for two weeks in preparation for the arrival of the spring.

Chingay turns 50! Over the last 50 years, Chingay has brought many people from all walks of life together, showcasing our heritage, multiculturalism, people, values and aspirations, strengths that have helped us emerge stronger as one united people. Through this series of commemorative programmes, immerse in different elements of Chingay that make this a well-loved People’s Parade.
See Chingay through the lenses of the individuals who have been a part of the Chingay family over the years and have fun discovering fun facts of Chingay!
Instead of the usual Chingay floats, the #HeyChingay50Bus campaign will transform selected public buses as reimagined Chingay floats with unique in-bus experiences for commuters. These Chingay50 Buses are now on the roads of Singapore to surprise residents and bring cheer to residents all around the island!
Chingay turns 50 in 2022 and it’s story and journey will be unfolded through the lenses of the people involved. The performers, volunteers, audiences, crew members and even community partners have come together to share their memories and experiences through 50 stories anchoring on the Chingay50 theme “Ignite our Dreams”.
Check out these treasured photos from past audiences and participants who answered our call to share their fond photo memories through the public campaign – Chingay as You PHOTO it.
