Celebrating Diwali in Singapore!

Celebrating Diwali in Singapore!

Witness an exciting time in Singapore as the local Indian community celebrates good over evil. There will be a magnificent street-light up surrounded by cultural performances, a heritage exhibition, symbolic processions, as well as a food and drink festival like no other.

During this period, the Indian community in Singapore, including expatriates, migrants and visitors, will come together to celebrate Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights. Diwali is a time for rejoicing and renewal as Hindus all over the world celebrate the triumph of good over evil or light over darkness. During Diwali celebrations, many homes will light up oil lamps with rangolis drawn on the floor to usher in light and good fortune.

To mark the celebration of Diwali, Little India on Serangoon Road is transformed into a fairyland with an explosion of vibrant, colourful lights and elaborate street decorations and arches. This truly mesmerising cultural event will include the month-long street light-up which kicks off with a switch-on ceremony on 13 October at the Kinta Road carpark. A host of other events like a heritage exhibition, festive village, countdown concert, Deepavali play and Utsav street parade will take place during the festive period.

The Utsav street parade is not to be missed—it is one of the most amazing events held at Singapore’s attraction Little India and is a splendid collage of songs and dances.
Diwali also provides an opportunity for you to witness the Silver Chariot Procession, as well as other symbolic happenings such as the fire walking festival—a visual spectacle that has been known to astound.
