Happening for three weekends for the first time from 23 August to 7 September 2024, this year’s festival is themed the Art of Play. This exploration of the concept of play and childhood is inspired by the historical significance of Bugis as the birthplace of some of Singapore’s first schools such as the Singapore Institution Free School in 1837, located along the seafront Bras Basah Road (where Raffles City today stands) also known today as Raffles Institution.

What’s more sentimental than walking down memory lane to discover and relive some of these unique stories and traditions of Bugis through the festival’s signature projection mapping artworks, night light installations by local and regional artists.
