Singapore Events & Festivals

Singapore Information

The rich mixture of cultures in Singapore means that there's always a cultural event to celebrate, all through the year. These festivals are usually colourful events centred around religion, age-old myths and traditions or the family. During these times it's the ethnic quarters and temples of Geylang, Little India and Chinatown that come alive, but often a happy carnival atmosphere invades the suburbs, town centres, and even shopping malls, too.

Singapore is quite a culturally-open and sensitive society. The "open-house" concept - where a family welcomes friends, relatives and any visitors who may wish to drop by to its home - is a common practice during the major festivals like Hari Raya Puasa, Deepavali and Chinese New Year. Singapore's cultural celebrations are open to everybody and anybody, with just a few things to bare in mind - remember to dress appropriately for the occasion and leave your shoes at the entrance of mosques and temples.

Here, we bring you a month-by-month list of the festivals celebrated in Singapore, as well a list of the public holidays in Singapore.
