Welcome to The Peranakan Festival!
After 2 successful years, the 3rd Peranakan Festival is going to kickstart with a bang from 7 June to 31 July, running mostly on weekends will sweep visitors into an enriching immersion experience of the fascinating Straits Chinese community. This year for the first time ever, a Gala Dinner will be held at the Marina Mandarin on 7 June with 11 outstanding chefs of various ethnic backgrounds coming together to cook a single traditional Peranakan dish. It will be a grandstand event of the year! Hurry, purchase your tickets.
Performances, a first-ever pop-up exhibition of an interior of a Peranakan house, cooking demonstrations, tastings and a sumptuous high tea with joget sessions that will entertain visitors at Claymore Connect and The Peranakan Restaurant at 442 Orchard Road.
Enjoy a Mari Gelek Joget (Dance) High Tea that highlights the Peranakan love for music and dance.
Visit The Peranakan Gallery, a newly opened exhibition on Peranakan culture that highlights the community’s heritage, such as a showcase on the game of cherki, played by Nyonyas in the past.
