Are you one of those Singaporeans who think that our little red dot is boring and has nothing worth getting excited for?
Well, we used to think so, but not anymore! Check out these ten exciting upcoming events that you have to go for the rest of 2017!
Piece of Peace World Tour Singapore
This is possibly the most exciting event for Lego lovers in Singapore. Experience the rush of euphoria as you gaze upon a mini world built entirely out of Lego bricks. Check out Shinto Shrine in Japan, the statue of Liberty and other exciting places in this exhibition. As this is a celebration for the 50th anniversary of ASEAN, it is likely not going to be back once it is over!
Venue: Fort Canning Arts Centre
Dates: 27 July – 03 September 2017
Singapore International Arts Festival
We used to complain that there is nothing arty about Singapore, but that has changed over the years. One of the most exciting festivals in town recently is the Singapore International Arts Festival (SIFA).
Held over a period of slightly over 2 months, the SIFA seeks to engage and entertain both artists and the public through a series of talks, theatre, dance and music performances. You can check out the programmes here.
Venue: Various locations
Date: 28 June – 09 September
Singapore Food Festival
Food is at the heart of every true Singaporean. We bond over food; we build new friendships over food; we even close business deals over food! There is no wonder that excitement abound whenever the Singapore Food Festival comes around!
Happening now till 30 July 2017, there are various events happening all over our little island that have to do with food. Perhaps one of the most popular event would be the 50 cents Fest which draw crowds every year at the Chinatown Food Street. You can check out the full list of events here.

Date: 14 July to 30 July 2017
