Where To Shop, Eat And Play This Weekend (27-29 Sep)

September’s almost over, and you know what that means: Time for Children’s Day, Halloween and monsoon season! In the meantime, here’s what you can look forward to this weekend.

1. Singapore Vegan Festival

Think vegan means bland and unappetising? This festival will change your mind. The Singapore Vegan Festival is full of mouth-watering vegan cuisine, from local dishes like biryani to Japanese and Greek food. There’s even an array of market stalls where you can peruse treats like dairy-free chocolate cupcakes, flavourful cashew cheeses and even vegan wines.

2. Halloween Horror Nights

Ready for some bloodcurdling terror? Halloween Horror Nights is here and ready to rock. This year’s line-up boasts five haunted houses, two scare zones and even a couple of live shows for you to scream your lungs out. But the crowning jewel is definitely The Curse of the Naga, an original haunted house crafted by the directors of the Thai horror films Shutter and 4bia.

3. Beyond the Label Fest


This festival may be a bit heavier than the weekend festivals you’re used to, but it’s certainly worth checking out. The Beyond the Label Fest aims to tackle the pervasive issue of mental health stigma while encouraging support and acceptance for persons battling mental health conditions. In line with its theme, the festival features a number of self-care workshops where you can dabble in yoga, pottery and even aromatherapy. There’s even a specially designed escape room with a twist: The room simulates the experience of an individual with mental health conditions, giving you a glimpse of what it’s like to live with depression and anxiety.
