This year’s edition of Singapore Food Festival will take place from 19 to 30 July 2023, featuring an extended Festival Village and various island-wide food-related activities.

Foodies, mark your calendars. Fresh from the oven is news that the annual Singapore Food Festival, one of the Lion City’s most popular foodie events, comes back this month to sate our ravenous appetites. Running from 19 to 30 July 2023, Singapore Food Festival 2023 will again put Singapore’s food culture in the spotlight.

This year’s festival highlights include an expansive Festival Village at Marina Bayfront occupying over 17,000 square metres with over 100 unique food brands under one “roof” split into different themed zones.

There’s SG Food Walk, a gastronomic hat tip to Singapore’s culinary diversity, for example. Here you’ll find festival exclusives with the likes of sustainability-focused restaurant Kausmo and local fish farm Ah Hua Kelong collaborating to offer calamari nachos, while Mr. Popiah has come up with curry chicken fried popiah to titillate your tastebuds.

Then over at the Food Cartel zone you’ll find festival activities running from pop-ups to bar guest shifts and cooking masterclasses. For example, renowned chefs including Ivan Yeo of Blue Smoke; Eric Neo of the Singapore Chef’s Association; Paul Longworth of Rhubarb Le Restaurant; and Shen Tan of Ownself Make Chef will be hosting various masterclasses.

What’s particularly interesting about Singapore Food Festival 2023? There’s a lot of focus on sweets! Those with a sweet tooth definitely need to drop into Sweets Alley, where you’ll find a swathe of local confectioners pushing out various creations to give you your sugar rush. You’ll find traditional offerings such as the classic Chinese desserts of Yat Ka Yan and Nonya-style handmade ang ku kueh from Ji Xiang Ang Ku Kueh, to more contemporary ones like artisanal ice cream from Creamier.

Then there’s Café Boulevard, a zone dedicated to Singapore’s thriving café culture. Here homegrown brands such as Le Matin Patisserie, Arc-en-ciel Patisserie, MADU The Bakery and more showcase the innate Singaporean love for pastries (and hanging out at cafés).

Also be sure to look out for cocktail bar Papa Doble and local breweries Archipelago and The 1925 Brewing Co, who are repping Singapore’s vibrant cocktail culture and brewing chops on the festival grounds.

“There is no better way to mark Singapore Food Festival’s 30-year journey than by indulging in a feast of experiences that showcase the diverse and ever-evolving cuisine by our world-class culinary talents,” says Guo Teyi, Director, Retail & Dining, Singapore Tourism Board. “We are thrilled to invite local and international visitors to experience the festival’s tantalising lineup this July, ranging from crowd favourites to festival-exclusives by participating food stalls.”

“We also encourage you to join us for masterclasses and workshops to further expand your culinary prowess,” she added.

Like previous editions, Singapore Food Festival 2023 will also feature various fringe activities outside of the official SFF Festival Village. These include Indie Singapore Tours’ ‘Market, Mingle, Mixology’ tour, which will take participants to Tiong Bahru Market for herbs to make their own cocktail creations.
