From 3 to 7 March 2021, all Singapore residents can redeem two tickets for the price of one to either the Singapore Zoo, River Safari, Night Safari, or Jurong Bird Park!

2. Sky High Hawker
What’s Singapore without its flourishing, yet nostalgic, hawker scene? Exclusive to this weekend, the event takes guests on a gastronomic adventure – a whopping 57 floors above the city. The best part? Each dish will only cost a mere $10!
Be spoilt for choice with dishes whipped up by some of Singapore’s most innovative chefs, such as James Wang from Hai Kee Soy Sauce Chicken Rice, Kurt Sombero from Meatsmith, Renee Tang Eyrn from Jelebu Dry Laksa, Ueda Tsuyoshi from Tsuta, and Manjit Kaur from Moghul Mahal. CE LA VI’S Executive Chef, Joey Sergentakis, will also be offering his exquisite bao-burgers, topped off with desserts by pastry chef Kelvin Chia, and delightful cocktails by mixologist Andrew Hyman.
Entry to the event is complimentary; do make your reservations here.
3. Singapore Art Book Fair
Held at both NTU CCA Singapore and 72-13 from 5-7 March 2021, this highly-anticipated event is unfortunately fully booked. If, however, you’re one of the lucky ones who managed to snag a ticket, there’s plenty lying in store!
Held annually, the Singapore Art Book Fair is an independent multi-day event revolving around contemporary art books and zines. The event was cancelled last year but returns this year to much fanfare. Take your time to browse various zines, books, and catalogues, and open your eyes to a whole new world of independent designers, artists, and more. Each of the two venues will showcase different items and exhibitions, so do plan time to visit both.
4. Hello Kittty x Sakura Display at Gardens by the Bay
Be transported to Japan at Gardens by the Bay’s new exhibit. Make your way through iconic orange torii gates, and feast your eyes on a dazzling display of cherry blossoms. And adding to the kawaii factor is the inclusion of the Hello Kitty character, which appears in various scenarios. Spot Hello Kitty having a hanami picnic, in front of two local rickshaws, and more!
Did we mention that the cherry blossom trees were brought here all the way from Japan? Visitors can also view and participate in various cultural activities, such as performances by a Japanese drum group.
Pre-book your timed-entry tickets here; tickets are also redeemable with the SingapoRediscovers Vouchers.
5. Sept Fest 2021
It has been a dark time for lovers of the arts here in Singapore. After more than 30 years of operation, The Substation will be shutting its doors for good come July 2021. Comprising an independent arts centre, The Substation has given many budding artists a much-welcomed boost, providing a safe haven where they can pursue their art.
Don’t miss out Sept Fest 2021, one of the last few events that will be hosted at The Substation. Making a valiant comeback after a six-year hiatus, Sept Fest is a glorious celebration of the arts over four weekends in March. Named “In the Margins”, the festival offers two exhibitions and 11 productions – created by a total of 35 artists. Spend the weekend being swept away by music performances, film screenings, art exhibitions and more.
Get your tickets here – this festival might very well mark the end of an era.
