August is always a big month for Singapore – it is the nation’s birthday, after all. This year, we celebrate Singapore’s 58th National Day on August 9 with a host of fun festivities, and, of course, plenty of fireworks. Elsewhere, the Singapore Night Festival will also return to the Bugis and Bras Basah precincts this month with a lineup of exciting activities and experiences for the whole family. And, like last month, expect more music-related events this month – The Strokes, LANY, and Bruno Major will be performing in Singapore, while the Sundown Festival is scheduled for August 11 to 13. 

There are also plenty of fun activities to keep your little ones occupied, such as an adorable rave for babies and toddlers (arriving in Singapore for the first time ever). Read on for our top picks for the best things to do in August.

  • Things to do

Celebrate National Day on August 9 with all the fun activities planned for Singapore’s 58th birthday! Of course, the main draw is the National Day Parade, which returns to the Padang this year. But even if you can’t catch it in person, you can still partake in family-friendly heartland celebrations from August 5 to 6 at the Bedok, Jurong West, Woodlands, Toa Payoh and Tampines stadiums. On the day itself, fireworks will also be set off at these locations, in addition to the main fireworks display at Marina Bay. Looking for the best places to see fireworks? Find out more here.
