Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre's CNY Family Fun 2019: A Weekend Of Activities

With Chinese New Year 2019 less than a month away, gear up to welcome the Year of the Pig as the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) presents CNY Family Fun 2019 with a slew of programmes for young and old.

Held over 12 and 13 January 2019, learn about the traditions and practices behind the Spring Festival, usher in the Lunar New Year with your very own DIY terrarium, or collect a limited-edition red packet designed by local illustrator Ah Guo.
