Chefs, musicians, artists, and fashion brands will set the scene next month at the iconic Lim Chin Tsong Palace.
A slice of Singaporean life – from food and music to art and culture – will land at the palace for two days starting Feb. 1.
Highlights include the Art Walk – a cool place for taking selfies for the ‘gram – and the Designers’ Market. Inside the palace, see collaborative works by Myanmar and Singapore artists such as Bart was Not Here, Calvin Pang, and Marc Nair. For all the fashionistas, the Designers’ Market will feature popular local and Singaporean brands such as Her Velvet Vase, Praise, Parami Maw, and more.
Then there’s the food. Visitors will get to taste Singaporean cuisine from culinary experts such as Aaron Wong, Malcolm Lee, and Michelin Star-winning Hawker Chan. Local favorites Rangoon Tea House, The Pansodan, and Shwe Sa Bwe will be there as well.
This garden party will also feature live music by acoustic singer-songwriters by day. Once the sun goes down, DJs will take over, including those from Singapore’s Zouk nightclub taking the stage.
The festival has sustainable aims, and organizers vow to make minimal use of plastic. Smoking will not be permitted.
One day, general admission tickets are now on sale online for MMK15,000-MMK180,000. Organizers say all proceeds will go toward maintenance and restoration of the palace.
3pm to 10pm, Feb. 1 -2
