The More We Get Together Festivals and Festivities in Singapore






Singapore is a melting pot of different cultures comprising various ethnic communities, such as the Chinese, Malay, Indians and Eurasians, who maintain their distinct cultures and traditions while embracing a shared national identity.

This cultural diversity is manifested in the sheer number and variety of festivals on Singapore's calendar. Some of the major festivals observed in Singapore include Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Puasa, Deepavali and Christmas

Co-curated with students from Chung Cheng High School (Main) and River Valley High School, "The More We Get Together Festivals and Festivities in Singapore" exhibition showcases how Singaporeans of different races and religion celebrate their respective festivals and highlights the common threads found in these festivals.

Exhibition was held at NUS Central Library on Level 4 (near the LINC terminals) from 1 September to 30 September 2017. Have fun playing with the festive motifs emboss!

Below is our collection on Singapore Festivals:
