Mid-Autumn @ Gardens By The Bay

Join in celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival with sprawling lantern sets depicting the "Autumn Abundance" of the harvest season!


A much-anticipated event in the Gardens' calendar, Mid-Autumn @ Gardens by the Bay draws visitors with its sprawling lantern displays and myriad festivities amidst a lush garden setting.

This year, the Gardens celebrates autumn abundance with lantern sets symbolic of bountiful harvests and good fortune, nightly cultural performances, a food street featuring Asian delights, and craft booths offering activities like lantern decorating, umbrella painting and Chinese knotting.

Lantern Display

Take a stroll through the outdoor gardens where sprawling lantern sets bring to life scenes of bountiful harvests and abundance. Don't miss "Waters of Prosperity", the largest lantern display created by the Gardens to date. Spanning an area of 1,250 square metres over water, this lantern set portrays a fishing village teeming with 70 carp-shaped lanterns.

Other highlights include "Grains of Gold", a paddy field illuminated with 4,000 glowing rice stalks; "Splendour of Blooms" featuring some 250 waterlily-shaped lanterns floating on the lake; and "Flight of the Dragonflies" with more than 100 dragonfly-shaped lanterns adorning the Supertrees. The lanterns dotting the outdoor gardens continue inside Flower Dome as part of the "Autumn Harvest" floral display; look out for a plethora of fruit and vegetable-shaped lanterns including a giant pumpkin-shaped one!
