Bazaar Raya Geylang Serai 2023 is set to return ten times bigger this year, with 700 stalls (up from 70 last year) setting up shop on the streets come March 17. It will also be the longest-running edition in history, sticking around for a whopping 36 days – plenty of time for you to check out all the F&B and retail goodies.
The theme of the annual bazaar is Raya Gemilang, meaning 'glorious feast', and will feature two concept zones. The first is Souq City, a market in the vicinity of Wisma Geylang Serai where you'll find stalls hawking food, drinks and retail items. This is also where you can get in the spirit of giving – look out for community shelves in Souq City, where you can leave non-perishable halal food and clothing.
The second concept is the Street Bazaar, which will stretch from Geylang Serai Market to the area beside Tanjong Katong Complex. This area will showcase three distinct themes as well as interactive art installations.
The first day of Bazaar Raya Geylang Serai 2023 will coincide with the annual Hari Raya light-up in Geylang Serai. The festival market will run daily from 10am to 11.59pm with an extension until 6am in the lead-up to Hari Raya on April 22. Watch this space for more updates on this year's bazaar.
