Gardens By The Bay Mid-Autumn Festival 2022: Lanterns Of Reunion

Gardens By The Bay Mid-Autumn Festival 2022: Lanterns That Signify Reunion
Sharing is caring!

Reunion. That’s the theme of Gardens by the Bay Mid-Autumn Festival 2022. This is reflected in both the lantern sets that can be found at the Golden Garden and Supertree Grove, as well as in the return of activities to the festive event.

The Gardens by the Bay Mid-Autumn Festival 2022 light-up is being held from 27 August to 11 September. This includes the period of the September school holidays in Singapore.


Lanterns at Gardens By The Bay Mid-Autumn Festival 2022

This year, the lanterns at the Gardens are centralised at two areas – the Golden Garden, next to the main car dropoff point, and the Supertree Grove.

At 11-metres tall, the Flight tot he Phoenix shows a phoenix rising up a Supertree at the Golden Garden. Below, all manner of birds gather to pay homage to it. This lantern set at Gardens by the Bay is based a mythological tale about how the phoenix shared its food with other birds during a drought to save them from salvation.

Try spotting different types of birds like the flamingo, owls and mandarin ducks at the lantern set. It almost seems like we have momentarily stumbled into the Jurong Bird Park.

Return of the Marketplace and Cultural Performances

In another “reunion”, the marketplace and cultural performances have returned to Gardens by the Bay for the Mid-Autumn Festival 2022.

Return of the Marketplace and Cultural Performances

There are more than 10 stalls selling food and performances will be held on the weekends during the light-up period.

In addition, there is also a promotion where kids can enter the Flower Dome for free at certain times.

If you are looking for more places with lanterns in Singapore, we’d recommend checking out the lanterns at Jurong Lake Gardens too.
