Singapore Mid Autumn Festival

Also known as the Lantern Festival or Mooncake Festival, the Singapore Mid Autumn Festival is one of the most popular events celebrated by the Singaporean Chinese community.

It takes place annually on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month and has been celebrated for more than one thousand years in China.

Singapore Mid Autumn Festival Singapore 2024 & Chinese Moon Cakes

The majority of the population in Singapore is Chinese, thus making the Mid Autumn Festival an important tradition here. The festival centres around the worship of Chang’E, the Moon Goddess, for her favour and good fortune.

The whole family gets involved in the celebration giving them time to bond as they gather the harvest, pray and offer thanksgiving. Business partners and friends also show their gratitude by sharing moon-cake gifts. The Lantern Festival is not complete without savouring the tasty mooncakes, which come in various shapes, colours and flavours. The signature mooncake for the Singaporean community is the Durian-filled cake.

Join in celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival as lanterns light up Gardens by the Bay in the evenings from 6pm to 10pm daily!

Be sure to capture beautiful memories with your family and friends as you wander along picturesque paths lined with colourful lanterns inspired by Chinese mythology, legends and cultures depicting reunion, fate and affinity. What’s more! Catch different cultural performances, activities, and bond with your loved ones over fun carnival games and delicious treats that the food street offers.
