Carousell are celebrating their seventh anniversary this year, and they’re doing it in a big way! The popular online classifieds platform are taking their online operations into the offline world for three days at Carouselland.
‘Small dreams, big possibilities’ is the theme for this year’s fun-filled convention, and big possibilities are indeed abound, as it promises to be its most massive affair yet! More than a hundred sellers of all kinds and creeds will be putting their wares on display at the three-day event, and it’ll go way beyond just transactions. Many activities and workshops will be on offer as well, so you can be sure there’s no lack of things to do this weekend. Guess you’ll just have to read on to find out what’s going down at Carouselland — returning for the fourth year!
Heading to Carouselland with a bunch of friends? Why not gather everyone and head straight for some board games?
Get ready for the ultimate throwback as we revive the Kendama hype from 2015. Rejoice, as you’ll get to try out different kinds of Kendamas at Carouselland. If you prefer something a little old school though, the Retrogamers are here to bring you a blast from the past with old game consoles from the late 1990s to early 2000s — remember the old times of blowing into the game cartridges, 90’s folks?
Are you a fan of The Sam Willows? This one’s for you — Narelle Kheng herself will be sharing her top tips for multitasking in “All About Balance”, a session happening only on Saturday. Take a peek into the life of how she strikes a balance between her music career and school, family, relationships and life. Get a notebook and pen out ‘cause the effortlessly stylish singer will also be running a styling workshop, where she’ll share her top tips on how to look your best at any occasion.
Don’t forget Match and Win-Win, a randomized game where you’ll have to pick a card at the entrance and find your other half with a matching card. When you do, snap a picture of your matching cards and stand to win prizes worth up to SG$500!
How else will anyone know you were at Carouselland this weekend? We know the struggle, fellow millennials, and we’re happy to report this event that this event has no lack of IG-worthy backdrops. When you’re taking a break from visiting the different booths on offer, why not snap a photo at one of many Instagrammable spots? Let us know if you manage to find all seven of them.
Get your hands dirty
Get your hands on a spot for these hands-on activities! These entrepreneurs are giving away some of their trade secrets in a short session. Pick from 13 workshops this year, where you’ll be able to learn everything from how to make Rangoli art to fixing a scratched up car door! You’ll even have the option of attending calligraphy, notebook crafting and leather crafting workshops, and much more. Spots are limited so make sure you don’t miss out!
Treat yo self
It’s probably in our constitution somewhere that where there are Singaporeans, there must be food. When you need a break from perusing all the fine goods on sale, why not fill your belly with the many sweet and savoury options on offer? Expect classic funfair foods such as fried oreos and twist potatoes, but if you’re after something more substantial, vendors such as Sofnade and Steakville will serve up some meatballs in a bucket and steaks that will more than satiate your carnivorous appetite.
For those with a sweet tooth, indulge in some insta-worthy desserts such as rainbow ‘praffles’ from Fooditude or sink your teeth into some sweets with a local twist such as ondeh ondeh churros from Loco Loco.
Carouselland is happening this August 16-18 at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Halls A & B. If you need more information, head over to their Facebook page and don’t forget to RSVP to their event here!
