Solar New Year Exhibition | 7 to 31 May 2022, 9 am to 6pm
The Aw Brothers opened Haw Par Villa to the masses, as a vibrant and educational park for all communities, during a time when there were limited recreational areas for the general public. In keeping with the spirit of the Aw brothers to keep the park inclusive and educational, Haw Par Villa is bringing the communities together yet again to celebrate diversity and heritage.
We are all aware of the universal New Year, 1 January, and the Lunar New Year which usually falls in late January or February. But slightly later in mid-April, another New Year arrives for a host of communities across South and Southeast Asia. The Solar New Year unites a myriad of communities across the Indian subcontinent, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Nepal, Sri Lanka and a part of Southern China.
Come learn more about the Solar New Year and the communities which celebrate it! More information about this exhibition can be found here: https://www.hawparvilla.sg/fat-event/solar-new-year-observation/
