This year’s installations at CHIJMES and Capitol Singapore offer an exciting lineup of fun for all the family that includes skating, snow play, and a fun Christmas Market that transports you to the streets of Germany.


Snow Play & Snowfall

Christmas Market

Christmas markets are markedly what make the evening stroll in winter time so special. There’re just few things that come close to strolling along street stalls with a hot cocoa in hand on a blustery evening. Here, you’ll be able to shop for all sorts of gifts while supporting local, such as the likes of hand-poured candles from Zendle, resin coasters and keychains from Floral Knots, tea from Pétale Tea, and popcorn from the famed myEureka.
