Heritage Kampung is about reconnecting with our roots so that we discover the journey that led to our existence & the importance of Community Spirit. It is understanding the past as we redefine the 21st Century Kampung Culture to be the foundation for a Sustainable Future.
Held during weekends & school holidays from February to June, Heritage Kampung is an extravaganza of cultural events, a festival of glorious foods & a kaleidoscope of colourful patterns & images from the past.
Why come down to Heritage Kampung?
We believe in the power of community and the importance of reconnecting fellow citizens with Singapore’s heritage and the timeless values embodied by our pioneers representing each ethnic group such as Lim Nee Soon (Pernakan), Tan Kah Kee (Chinese), Mohamed Eunos (Malay), P. Govindasamy Pillai (Indian) & Edwin Tessensohn (Eurasian).
See you at Heritage Kampung and be a part of history to create the 21st century kampung culture. Indeed, a rare opportunity not to be missed!
