From new restaurant openings every month to the recent reveal of this year’s Michelin Guide Singapore (which flagged a whole new slew of venues worth visiting), and existing eateries consistently pushing out tempting new dishes to try, local foodies are indeed a blessed lot. Our city has also played host to several gastronomic events over the past few months, such as Singapore Cocktail Festival, Singapore Restaurant Week and the ongoing Rasa Fiesta Singapura — the country’s first-ever dedicated rum festival.

The next must-see highlight on this year’s epicurean calendar is the Singapore Food Festival, which takes place across various venues from 14 to 30 July. Spanning food stalls, pop-up dining concepts, workshops and even a tea festival, the two-week affair is packed with more than enough activities to keep local gourmands well-fed.

If you can’t decide which events to visit at this year’s Singapore Food Festival, we’ve put together a guide to 5 highlights to consider. Ranging from a fair of local delights to a food photography workshop and an interactive dining concept that pairs food with contemporary dance (yes, you read that right), these are some of the key highlights worth checking out.
