What is Singapore Day and who is the organiser?
Singapore Day is an annual event organised for Singaporeans living abroad. Held each year in a major city with a significant number of Singaporeans, this day-long event reunites Singaporeans and provides an occasion for them to strengthen bonds, to relive their fond memories of home and to connect with the latest economic, social and cultural developments in Singapore. Through Singapore Day, we hope that our overseas Singaporeans will be inspired to explore the part they can play in building Singapore’s future.
The inaugural Singapore Day took place in 2007 in New York City, USA, and has since been held in Australia (Melbourne and Sydney), UK (London), US (San Francisco) and China (Shanghai).
Singapore Day is organised by the Overseas Singaporean Unit in the Office for Citizen Engagement, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY), in partnership with organisations in the people and private sector.

What can I expect at Singapore Day 2018?
Singapore Day 2018 presents the possibilities in our Heartlands, City and Nation. Attendees will be treated to a multi-sensory showcase with interesting activities for all. Familiar smell and tastes will be evoked by favourite hawker delights and performances by home-grown artistes will make music with endearing sounds and sights.
At the heart of every Singapore Day is the opportunity for Singaporeans, young and old, to come together as one people and to meet up with old friends while forming new bonds with others.
Why was London selected as the event venue for Singapore Day 2018?
Singapore Day was last held in London, at Victoria Park, in 2014. Having Singapore Day in London will give the large number of Singaporeans living there a chance to reconnect with home and participate in one of the biggest Singaporean reunions.
