Harmony Fest! 2024 officially kickstarts the Racial and Religious Harmony Month in July, where we commemorate the importance of racial and religious harmony and celebrate our diversity by bringing Singaporeans of different backgrounds and cultures together. This is aligned with the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth’s SGinHarmony efforts to strengthen mutual understanding and respect for our cultural diversity.

Harmony Fest! features four interactive zones and installations that represent the four core values of Harmony Circle: Trust, Respect, Cooperation, and Harmony. These values, which have been instrumental in preserving Singapore’s racial and religious harmony over the years, are integrated into our diverse lineup of activities. Participants will get to engage in experiences designed to strengthen relationships and deepen understanding of cultural diversity, all in one vibrant and inclusive hub!

A Journey of Kindness

Take this opportunity to explore the Singapore Kindness Movement booths and Kindsville Adventure Trail, where children can enjoy activities such as water stickers application, letter-writing to Singa, shrink art and colouring. These activities are designed to shed light on the importance of kindness and racial and religious harmony in our diverse community. The Adventure Trail, starting from OCBC Square, aims to celebrate Singapore’s rich multicultural heritage by guiding participants on a journey of discovery. Placed strategically along the trail are statues of the five K-I-N-D-ness Cubbies, each clutching a signage. These signages serve dual purposes – providing clues for the treasure hunt and imparting valuable information on different aspects of our society’s diverse cultures and traditions to allow participants to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of racial harmony and inclusivity.
