We can hardly believe it, but January is about to come to an end. Fret not though, tons of fun food festivals and markets are returning this February to tide you through another month in 2020. There’s the annual music and food showdown at RWS, a cafe convention that spotlights coffee and tea exhibitors from countries around the globe, a delicious boutique version of Artbox, plus many more. So shop away—payday fast approaches.
Music, food and fun will collide across four days at Resorts World Sentosa, thanks to Let’s Go Jalan Jalan, which spotlights local treats, live music by talented artistes, as well as workshops. Since the popular Crane Dance will be departing from the lifestyle destination come Mar 1, the festival will also host a public farewell to the attraction, so don’t miss that too.
Where: Resorts World Sentosa, The Bull Ring and Waterfront
