Sands for Singapore Charity Festival

Fri Aug 24 @ 8:00 am - Sun Aug 26 @ 10:00 pm

The Sands for Singapore Charity Festival is a multi-day event that aims to raise public awareness of our partner charities, and raise funds for them through a series of meaningful events that utilise every facet of the integrated resort – from the retail mall and restaurants, to the convention centre and museum. Since 2013, Marina Bay Sands has raised nearly S$20 million in total for local charities. Revel in the festive atmosphere and learn more about local charities in a fun and celebratory way as we extend our help to the community and inspire others to give back.

Make a stop at the Sands for Singapore Charity Festival’s bustling Festival at Event Plaza – a vibrant space to dine, unwind and support a range of meaningful causes. Marina Bay Sands’ celebrity chef and signature restaurants will once again serve up their award-winning menu items in the name of charity – but this time with the help of beneficiaries from local social enterprise Dignity Kitchen, a hawker training school for disabled and disadvantaged people.

Adding to the vibe is live music by youth buskers and local bands Supersonic, 53A and the HubbaBubbas, who will perform every evening during the Festival weekend. You can also participate in a variety of fringe activities that range from art jamming to drone fishing, and have fun while raising funds for local charities.

All proceeds from food and beverage sales at the Festival at Event Plaza will be donated to Community Chest.

The Sands for Singapore Charity Festival’s signature charity challenge Play It Forward will return for its fourth edition this year, after three successful runs since 2015.

Taking place on 26 August, Play It Forward invites members of the public to form teams of six to represent a local charity of choice and participate in fun and creative challenges across the integrated resort. This year, the Play It Forward challenge stations will each represent a participating charity supported by Marina Bay Sands, with activities that allow participants to learn more about each charity’s cause.

Also returning this year is the second edition of Play It Forward Junior – a kid-friendly version of the original charity challenge catered to children aged 7 to 12. Similar to the concept of Play It Forward, kids are invited to form teams of four to represent local charities and participate in simple games to secure cash prizes for them.

Registration for both challenges are open from 25 June to 3 August. Interested? Sign up at

24, 25 and 26 August

Throughout the Festival, visitors to attractions at Marina Bay Sands will also be lending a hand to those in need. Ticket proceeds collected over the three days from ArtScience Museum, Sands SkyPark Observation Deck, the Digital Light Canvas and the Sampan Ride at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands will be donated to local charities to help the underprivileged community.
