The highly anticipated Singapore Food Festival (SFF) returns to Chinatown Food Street for the third year running! Themed Savour the Past, Taste The Future, the 22nd edition of this popular festival honours Singapore’s culinary heritage, milestones and the upcoming phases of food innovation and adventure.
Back in Time to the 1950s
A key event partner for the SFF, Chinatown Food Street (CFS) brings to life the retrospective element of this year’s Festival with an elaborate food journey steeped in heritage and nostalgia: The 50 Cents Fest!
To be held at CFS from 30 to 31 July 2016, The 50 Cents Fest will transport guests back to 1950/60s Singapore, as the entire food street transforms into a nostalgic “pasar” or street hawker scene. Set against a realistic backdrop, visitors can indulge in sumptuous local fare comprising more than 30 iconic traditional dishes served up by 20 stalls and a team of specialist mobile hawkers.
“50¢ is Bigger Than a Bull Cart Wheel!”
In addition to the thoughtfully curated heritage food selection, visitors will also be able to truly relive the 1950/60s experience with dishes costing as little as 50 cents. Just like in the olden days, when the value of a 50 cent coin was enough for a sumptuous meal, the endearing phrase “50 cents is bigger than a bull cart wheel” will ring true at The 50 Cents Fest.
Fringe Activities
Visitors will also be immersed in the bustling street bazaar atmosphere with old-school street buskers such as letter writers, calligraphers and fortune-tellers. Families can enjoy “kampong-style” communal activities like black-and-white outdoor movie screenings, performances by opera singers and martial arts professionals that promise loads of fun and laughter for visitors of all ages!
Don’t miss out on this one-time opportunity to experience 1950/60s Singapore at The 50 Cents Fest, presented by Chinatown Food Street!
