Singapore’s well-loved attraction is not just a venue for horticultural recreation, it is also a place where annually or biennially recurring festivals are held. Here are several ticketed and free events that are worth checking out during your next visit to Gardens by the Bay.
There is no need to go Dutch or spend on air tickets to the Netherlands to enjoy tulip blossoms. Sponsored by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, this yearly showcase happens at the Flower Dome, where tens of thosands of tulips are meticulously planted to form a resplendent array of colours in the conservatory. With a variety of cultivars, such as the red and white ‘Singapura’ and magenta-gold ‘World Peace’, one will have a hard time choosing their favourite. There are also windmill installations and other Dutch-related sculptures to admire. Event date: Mid April to Mid May
#2 Christmas Wonderland
The annual year-end event has seen millions of visitors since its commencement in 2014. With glittering Luminarie light sculptures from southern Italy, a vintage Spiegeltent from the Netherlands, a traditional Christmas Market, an Ice Skating Rink and Snow Playground, and game stalls at the Fairground, this night festival offers plenty of fun-filled activities and photographic opportunities for everyone. The iconic light sculptures are similar to the one in Kobe Japan where the display is lit every winter to remember the victims of the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995. The one in Singapore is handmade with white wood and powered by 160,000 bulbs. Event Date: End November – End December
#3 Mid-Autumn Festival
Every September to October, the Gardens take Mid-Autumn Festival to a whole new level, by installing massive lanterns that resemble dragons, pheonixes, rabbits and other mythical Chinese creatures. While the colourful light showcase is the main attraction, visitors can also indulge in other activities, such as feasting on mooncakes and mid-autumn treats at the food street, enjoying cultural performances, painting a personalized lantern, and participating in traditional Lantern Riddles. Event date: Two weeks in September
