Kids zone

Other highlights include arcade games, Xbox Kinect, an F1 car simulator, face painting, balloon sculpting, art & craft, a giant Jenga station, and gladiator jousting.

DBS Food village by Savour
An array of regional dishes and delicacies will tantalise taste buds as we bring in culinary favourites from across the region. Chefs featured include Chef Emmanuel Stroobant, co-owner of Brussel Sprouts, and Chef David Ang of Bistro 1855 who has prepared meals for international celebrities such as Catherine Zeta Jones, Michael Douglas and Roman Abramovich.

Urban farming workshops
Free Urban Farming Workshops will be held for those interested in learning how to farm sustainably in their homes and office spaces. From the basics of organic growing to cultivating natural healing remedies, these workshops conducted by social enterprises Edible Garden City and ComCrop cover a wide variety of content that will be extremely useful to every urbanite.

Paddle for good
Event-goers are challenged to form teams with and paddle alongside persons with disabilities (PwDs), such as the members from the Deaf Dragons team. “Paddle for Good” simulates a dragon boat race, but on land with the use of indoor ergometer machines instead of boats. For every 1 kilometre paddled, DBS will donate SGD 100 to organisations that are committed to creating and running sports activities for PwDs.

DBS Art Park
The DBS Art Park will showcase eight up and coming artists from NOISE who will be expressing their creativity through visual arts on four giant art cubes. AsNo Doink, two time Singapore Graffiti champion, will lead another group of four artists, under Skratch Army, on the development of the fifth cube. As part of DBS’ partnership with the National Gallery Singapore, there will also be a Living Art segment at the DBS Marina Regatta. Living Art is a re-enactment of a selected painting that will be on display at the National Gallery Singapore. At the Regatta, actors will bring to life renowned artist Liu Kang’s painting “Life by the River”.
