Singapore’s biggest multicultural Chingay parade is back to electrify and engage audiences on 3 and 4 February 2023 with a live spectacle! Returning as a physical parade after two years of hybrid and digital showcases, Chingay Parade 2023 will involve over 10,000 residents, artists, and art groups including more than 3,000 performers. It will also mark the return of big colourful and impressive floats alongside community-created mini floats!
Families can head down to the LIVE showcase at F1 Pit Building to catch the floats and performers up close as well as the many other programmes and activities happening too!
The 2023 Theme - Embrace Tomorrow
With the theme, “Embrace Tomorrow”, Chingay 2023 Parade completes the trilogy that began with 2021’s “Light of Hope”, followed by 2022’s “Ignite Our Dreams”. It calls on Singaporeans to treasure the present and embrace tomorrow together as a community with hope, dreams, and confidence as we commit to a brighter Singapore.
Youth Created Container Art Installation
Sam Lo, Chingay 2023’s Art Director, together with eight local artists and 480 participants from the community co-created a larger-than-life art installation that will act as the parade’s performance backdrop. The Container Art Installation is made up of 28 20-footer and 40-footer containers and stands at 18m tall and spans over 60m. It is the largest-ever Community Art installation at the Chingay parade and will serve as the performance backdrop for Chingay 2023!
The artwork, created using spray paint, is an expression of the youths' vision of Embrace Tomorrow and a reminder for us to remain forward-looking and resilient, even as we overcome challenging times together as a nation.
