Singapore River Festival 2017

The annual Singapore River Festival is back on the shores of our iconic quays this year on November 3rd and 4th, with an exciting line-up of activities and event that will leave both young and old exhilarated. With the theme ‘Turn up the River’, festival goers can look forward to a weekend of firsts that pack a punch. A highlight is The Regatta Rumble at Boat Quay, which draws you in with the magnificent sounds of dragon boat drums. Along with the first night regatta to be held here in 20 years, it will also comprise of the Singapore River Regatta – one of our longest running day dragon boat races – and fans can expect to see up to 200 teams participating. There is also a post-race River Street Party at Circular Road with live performances, games, and food and drink options to keep the party going late into the night. Clarke Quay is also set to dazzle you – both figuratively and literally – with the first ever and biggest LED kite display. 20 lighted kites will adorn the river precinct, dovetailing to form alluring sequences. You can also get your hands on free drone trials and kite simulators at Clarke Quay Central to get you and your little ones involved. Another psychedelic party, the LIT UP Party, also happens concurrently at the Fountain Square. For those looking for a relaxing night to wind down, a movie under the star awaits at Quayside Cinema II. Back by popular demand, this year’s festival will screen local favourite, “3688”. With so many exciting activities, all you have to turn is to turn up at the river for a night of fun, laughter, and music. For more information, visit and
