NParks Parks Festival

Time: 4pm – 11pm (Sat) | 8am – 12pm (Sun)
Venue: Esplanade Park and Empress Lawn

Snap #instaworthy pictures at outdoor installations, bring out the artist in you during walking sketching tours, get up close and personal with local biodiversity at interactive booths, and satisfy your #foodporn cravings at out F&B stalls!

Christmas is around the corner so get your retail therapy on! Shop in comfort in our custom-built double-storey retail space named ‘The Incubator’ which will house more than 80 vendors from Gardeners’ Day Out, Artists’ Night Out and AVA’s Farmer’s Market.

Don’t worry about lugging around your shopping – we’ve got you covered. Storage services will be made available leaving you hands-free to enjoy the rest of the festivities.

Once you are done eating and shopping, it’s time to play!

Let your hair down and party the night away at the 10th edition of Rockestra®, entitled ‘Something Old, Something New’. Hosted by Justin Misson and featuring local acts Enigma, Jive Talkin’, Khim Ng & The MAD Company, SuperSonic and The Countdown, you can expect to be treated to classic retro hits and Top 40s current hits.

Pre-show entertainment from 6pm will be provided by the finalists from our very own NParks talent incubation programme Live Out Loud: Battle of the Bands and NParks’ resident band, RB1A.

Not going to be at the Civic District? Fret not! We have a host of satellite activities taking place simultaneously on both days, across various parks and green spaces as well.

Parks Festival is held in conjunction with Car-Free Weekend.
