1. What is Singapore Heritage Festival?

The Singapore Heritage Festival (SHF) is the National Heritage Board's annual signature outreach programme. A festival for the people, by the people, SHF is a fun and meaningful celebration of Singapore's shared heritage and culture. SHF also brings together different individuals and communities to co-create programmes for the festival, thus strengthening community ownership over our shared heritage.

SHF was launched in 2004, and is currently in its 17th year. Over the years, the festival has offered Singaporeans a platform to explore and discover lesser-known aspects of Singapore's heritage and culture through specially-curated exhibitions, heritage trails, open houses, and more.
