October’s Fairs and Festivals Roundup

While we’re getting pretty close to the end of the year now, that doesn’t mean we have to start looking back on what we’ve done so far. In fact, there are plenty of fairs and festivals this October to keep the party going!



This month, witness the lighting up of the entire Marina Bay area in a spectacular display of light installations by the waterfront and more. I Light Marina Baymarks the launch of the very first Asian sustainable light art festival with a bang.

Highlights include a breathtaking Light Walk comprising over 20 light art installations, sculptures, plus interactive and performance-based art displays from both home-grown and international design talents. There’ll also be plenty of fringe activities specially designed to teach big and small kids alike the importance of being eco-conscious in their daily lives.

David Foster, Sun Festival



For its inaugural year, I Light Marina Bay is organised as part of the larger and more well-recognized Singapore Sun Festival, which is held during the same period (check out our guide on what not to miss here). Be prepared to be dazzled by an entire bevy of international superstars such as Sharon Stone, David Foster (interview here), Natalie Cole and Curtis Stone, among many others.

Glamour of a different sort can be found at Ngee Ann City during the month of October as well, with the ongoing JewelFest (read our preview). If the stunning arrays of jewellery don’t take your breath away, their prices surely will!
