From some of the globe’s most coveted hawker markets, culinary experiences, immersive festivals and religious celebrations, it’s no secret Singapore is like no other in its magic all year long. Whether you’re a lover of lights, sports or downright incredible architecture, Singapore invites you to immerse yourself in this colourful wonderland where modern delights mix with ancient history.

Here are some of the awesome events not to miss in Singapore in December 2023 and beyond. 


This Festival of Lights also commonly known as ‘Diwali’ commemorates the triumph of good over evil where thoughts of Hindu families transform their homes into beacons of light and brightness, sharing gifts, feasts and prayers to the deities asking for continued prosperity and success. Visitors can saunter through Little India to absorb the sights, sounds and colours of the bazaars and endless light displays. 

Christmas On A Great Street

Orchard Road is not only home to one of the world’s most famous shopping strips but also becomes Christmas On A Great Street with dazzling arches and luxe decorations strewn down for miles. Walk down the streets at night when the Christmas lights are in full force to get into the festive spirit. Or do some last-minute Christmas shopping in one of the many shops at your disposal.


Music festivals don’t get much more epic than Sentosa’s huge two-day dance and music festival set on the sandy shores of the beautiful island. With iconic artists like Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto and Andrew Rayel bringing the beats in past years, you know you’re always up for a great time at ZoukOut.
