Singapore River Festival is back with a new theme, 'River Connections'. Watch Underclouds Cie tightrope across the river, sate your appetite with SR Signature dishes chosen by local chefs, or party at the Clarke Quay fountain during the silent disco. There are also art and light installations, musical performances and fringe activities like the ever-popular Barter Market – so start sharpening your haggling skills.
Also as part of Singapore River Festival, 21 restaurants have been awarded the Singapore River Signatures, an annual accolade that sees prominent figures from the F&B industry choose their favourite dish from restaurants along the River. In line with this year’s theme, 'Where Chefs Eat', the panel comprises four celebrated local chefs: Anthony Yeoh, Bjorn Shen, Cheryl Koh and Nixon Low. With discounts on some of those dishes at select establishments, visitors also get a chance to decide for themselves if the restaurants are indeed worthy of such an honour.
