The gourmet time of the year in Singapore

The Singapore Food Festival, one of the longest-running in Asia, this year celebrates its 26th annual event.


With the theme “Savour Singapore in Every Bite”, a total of 20 event partners will offer myriad dining concepts and gastronomic experiences from July 12-28.

SFF celebrates the pioneers of the local food scene and encourages the innovation of Singaporean cuisine. It also aims to engage local and foreign visitors through sharing more about authentic Singaporean flavours and the culinary talents behind them.

Ranita Sundramoorthy, Director of Retail and Dining, Singapore Tourism Board (STB), said: “The Singapore Food Festival continues to spotlight our vibrant and evolving local food scene that has been anchored by our unsung hawker heroes, home cooks and chefs.

"With this year's robust line-up of events, from private chef dinners and food tours around our heritage districts, to theatrical dining experiences - Singaporeans and visitors will be able to taste Singapore's diverse flavours and experience our food obsession first-hand.”

“In its 26th year, the festival continues to be a highlight on the Singapore foodie calendar. SFF is a compelling testament to the richness and diversity of our food scene, further cementing our city-state's reputation as a global culinary capital.”

STREAT is the SFF's signature event and will take place in the evenings (from 5pm-11pm) on July 12-13 at a new location at The Promontory at Marina Bay.

STREAT will offer a range of traditional hawker fare and modern interpretations of Singapore street food from 12 establishments showcased.

Think dishes like duck rice bento and zi char-inspired burgers paired with district-inspired cocktails from Origin Bar.

Bizarrely, and presumably for financial reasons only, Strongbow Apple Cider is a sponsor.
