Singapore has changed so much within a short amount of time.

We’ve grown Smarter, our food (and palate) has grown fancier, and we’ve had international acts grace our shores and give us some amazing performances. But every now and then, it’s good to take a moment to remember the past, to reminisce simpler times, and to delight in the simple things that make us who we are.

Let’s Go Jalan Jalan” is a food and music festival that brings all the most iconic things about Singapore – both new and old – to one place.

Happening from 17 – 19 Nov, this three-day event will take place at the nostalgic The Three Peacocks @ Labrador Park and will feature over 100 varieties of food and merchandise stalls.

There will also be sand art, rubber water colour art, and glitter art – a fun throwback to back when we were kids!

Harking back to simpler times, there will be henna stalls, stalls selling handcrafted ware, and a creative heritage trail!
