Mid-Autumn Festival 2020 with Gardens By The Bay

To keep the tradition of Mid-Autumn Festival alive and to bring cheer to Singaporeans as we adjust to life in the new normal, we will be celebrating Mid- Autumn with a mix of onsite and online offerings from 18 September to 4 October.


If you’d like to visit the Gardens for the lantern displays, please be assured that we have put in place the necessary safety measures to take care of your well-being. If you’re unable to visit us, do join in the festivities online with our suite of virtual programmes, which will be launching on this page on 18 Sep!


Apricot Grove

  • Golden Garden

The Apricot Grove, which features apricot flowers at various stages of blooming, enhanced with gobo lighting effect to simulate falling flower petals, is inspired by the Chinese fable of Dong Feng “董奉”, who is a skilled and generous medical practitioner from the Three Kingdoms period ”三国时代”.

Royal Family's Walk

  • Supertree Grove

The Royal Family’s Walk was first displayed at the Seoul Lantern Festival last year. Made of Hanji, a Korean traditional paper formed using the bark of the mulberry tree, it shows the royal procession of the king and queen in the early Joseon Dynasty, which is a common affair in the royal palace.

Illuminations of Joy

  • The Colonnade (Supertree Grove)

The Colonnade of Lights is a vibrant showcase of some 1,500 beautiful paper lanterns painted by the community as well as Gardens by the Bay's senior workers.

Water Song
