There’s lots to do at the fair, and for the first time, Etsy is partnering with Bookfest to bring a crafters’ market complete with fun workshops like fluid bear making, creating your own alcohol ink Christmas ornaments, and even batik printing! The workshops are separately ticketed, and can be booked here.

With over 20 booths selling iron on patches, tote bags, crochet dolls, and more, you’ll be spoilt for choice at the range of items on sale, which make great Christmas gifts, or sprucing up your home. 

For the book lovers, you’ll find popular titles from fiction to autobiographies at more than 60% off (the perfect time to treat yourself to a new book or two!) There’s also Chinese books, box sets, and manga among other big discounts you can find here.

There’s something for everyone, even Pokémon fans, where you’ll get to say hi to Pikachu at the Pikachu Meet & Greet on 17 December at 1.30pm. Slots for the meet and greet are fully reserved, but you can try your luck and walk in. You can also try out Pokemon: Scarlet & Violet at the demo booths at the fair!

Entertain the kids with colouring contests, magic shows, and even coding classes in an activity-packed series of stage events. And for the bargain hunters, you can bid on items in their ‘Crazy Auction’ from just S$1, from printers to laptops. 

Take part in the ‘Plinko Hunt’, and go on an exciting scavenger hunt and collect five stamps to enter a lucky draw where you could win cash prizes up to S$5000 (perfect for the kids to run around!)
