Hanabi festivals (or fireworks festivals) are integral to Japanese summers. This long-standing tradition is held practically in Japan every weekend for a few months each year country-wide. In addition to the fireworks show, locals can enjoy a selection of Japanese snacks and drinks that many stalls known as Yatai offer.
It’s no wonder locals look forward to this breathtaking spectacle every year! Here in Singapore’s SingPost Centre, we have our own Hanabi Food Festival too; you’ll definitely be able to experience the summer vibes and Yatai food as if you were in Japan.
From 06 to 18 June 2019, experience the Hanabi Food Festival by Isetan at SingPost Centre Main Atrium Level 1 from 11 am to 9 pm daily. Here are some highlights to look out for. Itadakimasu!

Returning for the third year in a row, Chang Sensory Trails—the annual Thai food festival organised by Thailand’s award-winning beer, Chang—lands back in Singapore after a world tour in London and Los Angeles to bring a weekend that celebrates everything we love about Thai cuisine and culture through the culmination of Singapore’s finest Thai restaurants, art, music and not forgetting, refreshing Chang beer.

This year’s Singapore Restaurant Month will be held from 01 July 2016 to 31 July 2016. In collaboration with the Health Promotion Board and Singapore Tourism Board, the Restaurant Association of Singapore has made ‘healthy dining’ the main theme for this year. Now, aren’t we all more conscious about eating healthier lately?
This year’s slew of dishes have to contain either 500 calories or less, or it has to be made up of at least 8% wholegrains such as oatmeal, brown rice and wholemeal bread. All of these dishes have been approved by certified Health Promotion Board nutritionists.
This year’s Singapore Food Festival comes back bigger and better, focusing on local flavours, as well as celebrating our country’s best dishes unique to our own. Titled “A Fresh Taste of Tradition”, Singapore Food Festival (SFF 2015) hopes to bring foodies together to revisit some of Singapore’s most iconic dishes and to remember our very special food heritage.
A variety of festivities and events have been lined up over the course of two weeks – 17 July to 2 August – where you will get a more hands-on and close up experience of Singapore’s amazing local fare.
Here are some events to note, and the highlights of Singapore Food Festival 2015 that you must not miss the world for:
