Every year, Orchard Road is transformed into a land of wonder known as “Christmas on a Great Street”, with Christmas lights, decorations and entertainment to celebrate this special holiday.
The festival runs between November and January each year, with attractions free to view. So bring your family down to this Christmas wonderland during your visit to Singapore!
Christmas on a Great Street, 2020/2021 Dates, Orchard Road Singapore
The festival usually kicks off mid-November at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza, where the roads are closed, and thousands of people converge on Orchard Road to witness the street lit up for the very first time of the year. Buildings will compete for the best decorations, so choose your favourite as they do their best win your vote!
This year, Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) celebrates “Love This Christmas”, a reminder that no physical distance should stop anyone from showing love to those they care about and love.
Immerse yourself in a dazzling display of lights and decorations – both physically and virtually until the 1st of January, 2021. Brightly lit snowflakes intertwined with mistletoe and hollies in white, gold and blue, are strung across the sub-precincts of Somerset, Orchard and Tanglin, while Christmas ornaments and white and gold baubles hang from trees and lampposts that line the boulevard.
Taking centre stage is a shimmering main arch, adorned with a gigantic blue ribbon and festooned with glittering reindeer and hollies, at the Orchard-Paterson Road junction. All this made possible by Hitachi, the Main Sponsor of the annual Christmas on A Great Street event since 1991.
For the first time, you can enjoy the dazzling display of street lights and decorations, both in-person and online. An all-new virtual 360° tour of Orchard Road with a user-controlled view takes you on a car drive in cyberspace down the 3.1-kilometre stretch from Tanglin Mall to Dhoby Ghaut, including Scotts Road.
You can get to Orchard Road by taking the MRT on the north/south, north/east or central line and alighting at Dhoby Ghaut, Somerset or Orchard stations.
