by Natalie Lim

Yes, February may have been an eventful month of love confessions and CNY celebrations. But before you know it, March has crept up on us and we’re almost done with the first quarter of the year. Though there are no public holidays for the working adults this month, it does mark the end of the school term.

From kid-friendly activities to art festivals, we’ve compiled a list of events happening in March to keep your calendars filled.

If you haven’t had the chance to spot Singapore’s Bishan otter family, Otah & Friends may just do the trick. At Singapore’s first otter-themed escapade, challenge yourselves to a game of hide-and-seek through a series of pastel-coloured rooms and lush foliage. 

After finding Otah successfully, visitors will be rewarded with refreshing lemonade and cookies from instafamous homegrown bakery Whiskdom.

Tickets are priced at S$15 per pax for a minimum of two pax, while a private session for 5 pax costs S$48—buy four and you’ll get one free.

The Land of the Rising Sun remains out of bounds for all Singaporeans, but we’ll still be able to catch cherry blossom season at Sakura Matsuri 2021.

When you’re standing in a flower field of Japanese red-crowned cranes and surrounded by pink blossoms of sakura and momo (peach blossoms), you’ll feel like the main character of an anime.

Hello Kitty fans can also look forward to photo opportunities with their favourite character, as she makes a special appearance at the Flower Dome.

📍 Flower Dome, 18 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018953
🗓️ 9am–9pm (From 1 Mar 2021)

Chinese calligraphy may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but the works featured in Beyond Ink – Suzhou: A Solo Exhibition by Zhuang Shengtao are audacious, unconventional and even liberal, which may intrigue even the hipsters. 

Zhuang’s vivacious, introspective brushstrokes capture a fresh interpretation and visuals of contemporary ink, and his works are permanently collected by National Gallery Singapore.

In March 2021’s event calendar, Candlelight by Fever will showcase Vivaldi’s masterpiece, Four Seasons, and it will be performed by a string quartered which consists of two violins, one viola and one cello. 

Classical music may not be your beat, but when you’re revelling in the gentle flicker of candlelights and serenaded by visceral crescendos, it’s hard to not be immersed in the music.

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is scheduled for various dates for March, but if you’re tied up for the month, other lineups from Chopin, Beethoven and Mozart will launch in April, May and June as well.

📍 Victoria Concert Hall, 11 Empress Place, Singapore 179558
All remaining dates: An emblematic building in Singapore (to be announced soon)
🗓️ Various dates in March
