  1. Multi-sensory STAR WARS Light and Music Showcase

See the Saber Trees light-up, where the futuristic Supertrees will be transformed to glow in resemblance of lightsabers, the weapon of choice of the Jedi and Sith warriors.

Twice nightly at 7.45pm and 8.45pm, catch the Garden Rhapsody: STAR WARS Edition featuring a dazzling 15-min music and light composition. This multi-sensory treat, set against the epic STAR WARS soundtrack will take place over these three nights only, so don’t miss it.

To round off the night, hit the dance floor for some STAR WARS themed Silent Disco on May 5th and 6th.


  1. STAR WARS Character Appearances

Joining us all the way from a galaxy far, far away, one of the heroes of the Rebellion, Chewbacca or Chewie as he is known to his close friends and Kylo Ren, the dark warrior from the First Order will both be in town for the festival. Whichever side of the Force you are on, you will not want to miss out on the chance to take a photo with these two characters that are making their first ever appearance in Southeast Asia.

Decked out in their own personalized custom made movie accurate costumes, catch the costume Fan Clubs, the 501st legion and Rebel Legion, as they celebrate the villains and heroes of the STAR WARS saga by bringing your favorite character to life.

As part of the festival, the inaugural STAR WARS RUN at The Meadow on May 6 aims to captivate both amateur and professional runners, as well as STAR WARS fans with fun experiences, themed around the brand’s memorable stories and out-of-this-world characters.
