Date: 30 November to 26 December 2018
Time: 4pm to 11pm
Venue: Gardens by the Bay
The fifth edition of Christmas Wonderland – Singapore’s largest annual ticketed event – will shine brighter than ever. The European-style Christmas fair will feature brand new highlights and a new take on crowd favourites when it returns to Gardens by the Bay this 30 November to 26 December.
“We’ve extensively reviewed each of our attractions based on customer feedback and greatly enhanced popular attractions such as Santa’s Grotto and the outdoor skating rink to improve the overall event experience. For Christmas Wonderland’s fifth edition, we have lined up some truly special treats – a world-class illusionist, as well as completely redesigned light sculptures and a new gourmet concept – in addition to our signature offerings that will leave visitors spellbound,” said Mr Kevin Soh, Director of Blue Sky Events.
Brand new iconic luminarie light sculptures handmade from Italy will transform the 57,000 square metre fairground into a wonderland, with Asia’s tallest luminarie Christmas tree illuminated in gold, at the entrance of Gardens by the Bay. For the first time, a majestic 22-metre high luminarie mirror maze – the biggest in Southeast Asia – will be the main feature of Christmas Wonderland, where visitors can weave through a maze of mirrors at the heart of the Supertree Grove.
Adding a whimsical touch of magic to the festivities is one of the world’s top illusionists, Rob Lake, who will headline the performance tent at Christmas Wonderland with his critically-acclaimed production, ‘The Magic of Rob Lake’. The America’s Got Talent 2018 quarterfinalist and youngest recipient of The Merlin Award is internationally renowned for performing spectacular illusions guaranteed to delight audiences.
For a truly enchanting Christmas, visitors can go on a journey to meet Santa at his Alpine House within the Santa’s Grotto, which has been upsized for 2018. This 400-square metre attraction is the largest of its kind in Asia and will feature even more Instaworthy festive installations and a mesmerising kinetic light installation from Germany. The outdoor skating rink has also been expanded and will feature an eight-metre tall illuminated Christmas tree nestled in the middle.
Over at ‘Slice of SAVOUR’, a bite-sized format of the SAVOUR Gourmet Festival, food lovers can look forward to a brand new concept offering trendy and accessible gourmet comfort food by Saint Pierre, Blue Lotus, Sinfonia Ristorante, Monti, Bee’s Knees and Three Buns as well as artisanal cocktails from Three Wisemen.
Complementing the visual spectacle, a brand new Garden Rhapsody – The Christmas Special light and sound show will make its debut at Supertree Grove.
Relive favourite Christmas traditions
Visitors can also experience the wonders of ‘snow’ in the tropics against a stunning backdrop of luminaries and Supertrees during Blizzard Time. For even more excitement, tons of fun for little ones await at the fairground with gingerbread inflatable houses, traditional carnival games and kiddy rides.
Visitors can also enjoy being serenaded by choral performers under the magical Cassa Armonica gazebo or shop for unique Christmas gifts at the Festive Market. A complete programme line-up and list of vendors will be released in the coming weeks.
In addition, visitors can celebrate the festive holidays with their favourite Tsum Tsum pals at Gardens by the Bay’s “Poinsettia Wishes Featuring Disney Tsum Tsum” floral display in the Flower Dome.
“Gardens by the Bay provides the most enchanting setting for the holidays. From the myriad festivities at Christmas Wonderland, including the debut of a 21-metre-tall golden Christmas tree, to the delightful “Poinsettia Wishes Featuring Disney Tsum Tsum” floral display in Flower Dome, there is something for everyone at the Gardens this year-end season,” said Mr Felix Loh, Chief Executive Officer, Gardens by the Bay.
“We’re delighted to have Christmas Wonderland in Singapore again for the fifth year running. Last year’s festivities saw over 380,000 attendees enjoying the various Christmas-themed activities. It has become a signature event that many locals and tourists look forward to every year-end, and the new entertainment offerings and timeless favourites such as the iconic light sculptures keep people returning,” said Ms Carrie Kwik, Executive Director of Attractions, Entertainment & Tourism Concept Development, Singapore Tourism Board.
