This August, the Chinatown Mid-Autumn Festival makes its long-awaited return after two years with its iconic street light-up, livening up the streets of Chinatown alongside an exciting line-up of activities, including its first-ever Food Fair.
Themed “Blossoming Flowers under the Full Moon” (花好月圆庆中秋), the festival will feature a spectacular display of lighted sculptures and lanterns from 26 August – 25 September 2022 that will sprawl across Chinatown’s streets.
Apart from the Food Fair, which will see the former Chinatown Food Street at Smith Street transformed into a nostalgic, bustling bazaar with street-style delights, other family-friendly activities that are not-to-be-missed include a Trade Fair, free weekend stage shows, and the ever-popular Lantern Painting Competition.
