The Singapore Night Festival (SNF) is back on its 13th year with the theme "Rebirth" after a 2-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. SNF has developed alongside Singaporeans over the years with a focus on adding and emphasizing the vibrant and distinct cultural value of the Bras Basah Bugis precinct. 

This year's festival grounds extend beyond the Bras Basah-Bugis precinct and into Fort Canning Park. So, get ready your best cameras and a pair of comfortable shoes for the long awaited festivals which takes place from 19 to 27th August 2022 (7.30pm to 12am)
