Dates: 27 Aug - 11 Sep 2022, 6 pm - 10 pm
Based on the theme of Reunion, this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival celebrates the fundamental significance of the festival, bringing family and friends together to enjoy the beautiful lantern displays that will light up the Gardens in the evenings. On top of fringe activities during the weekends, live outdoor stage performances and a marketplace will also make a return this year, creating a vibrant atmosphere to celebrate the mid-autumn festivities!
At the Golden Garden, get inspired by the Chinese folk myth “Flight to the Phoenix” (百鸟朝凤), this display showcases hundreds of birds soaring towards the phoenix, in honour of its generosity during a drought.
Over at the Supertree Grove, join the zodiac animals, as they engage in various fun activities during their Mid-Autumn Festival reunion on the beautiful moonlit night!
You will also find animal friends and family as they revel in traditional Korean games of yut-nori and kite-flying. These lanterns are made of hanji, a traditional handmade paper from Korea.
Walk though the Colonnade of Lights, a vibrant showcase of some 1,000 beautiful paper lanterns created by the community. This is available at the North Colonnade.
