SINGAPORE – As the pandemic situation stabilises, Gardens by the Bay is bringing back more original elements of its signature Mid-Autumn Festival (滨海花园庆中秋) event. For the first time since the pandemic, this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival will see the return of two significant crowd favourites to Supertree Grove: the outdoor marketplace where people can eat and drink, as well as outdoor cultural performances. With a fuller line-up of activities, there will be more opportunities for friends and families to bond – the reason why this year’s theme is Reunion (聚).
Feast on delectable street food and revel in cultural performances as outdoor activities make a return for the first time since the pandemic.
The marketplace, which will be open every day throughout the festival, comprises more than 10 stalls selling popular Asian fare. There will also be a seating area nearby for people to enjoy their food.
The cultural performances at Supertree Grove, which take place every weekend for the duration of the festival, are a diverse line-up put together with the support of the National Arts Council. Among the performers are award-winning Chinese percussion ensemble Drum Feng and Singapore Chinese Dance Theatre. Tok Tok Chiang, a platform founded by actor Nick Shen to reposition Chinese opera and renew interest in this traditional art form, will also perform.
Adding to the diversity are a K-Pop dance crew, as well as the A Date Under the Stars Concert, which will feature homegrown talents belting out a medley of Mandarin pop songs, Xin Yao and Ming Yao.
There will also be fringe performances featuring an LED diabolo (Chinese yo-yo) and LED twirlers.
