Christmas At Orchard Road returns with the annual Light-Up & the return of the Christmas Village with amusement rides, F&B, live music and more!
Venue: Orchard Road
Dates: 12 Nov - 2 Jan 2022
The Orchard Road light-up returns in 2022 where families can expect a festive-filled Orchard Road with glistening light displays, immersive attractions, pop-up activations and the Great Christmas Village, a fun-filled area with rides, live music, food and a beer garden.
Happening from 12 Nov 2022 till 2 Jan 2023, here’s what you can look forward to over the upcoming holidays.
Christmas Light-up Decorations
The Christmas lights will stretch across 3.1km from Tanglin Road (and ends at Plaza Singapura) where visitors will be greeted by a spectacular teal and white arch when they arrive. The lights which feature mini Ferris wheels and stars alongside 171 lamp posts will be dressed in energy-saving LED white lights to enhance the festive experience.
The main arch at the junction of Orchard Road and Scotts Road will feature Christmas trees decorated with reindeer and baubles on either side. Stroll along the streets and get into the Christmas cheer with popular Christmas tunes playing from Wheelock Place to Mandarin Gallery.
A new feature this year is the lighting up of 104 trees with energy-saving LED white lights. These same lights will later take on pink hues when Orchard Road ushers in Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day in 2023.
