Tis the season to indulge and be merry! Why not kickstart the holidays with a feast at Marina Bay Sands’ signature Epicurean Market?
The holiday season is in full swing and we think there’s no better way to ring it in than with an awesome gourmet experience the whole fam can enjoy. We’re talking a full-on Marina Bay Sands, happening from 14 to 15 December at Sands Expo and Convention Centre at Marina Bay Sands.
If you’re a gourmand (or little gourmand-in-the-making) you’ll know the Epicurean Market is just the shindig food-lovers have been waiting all year for. And, just like its predecessors, this year’s extravaganza promises the best of food, wine and spirits (although the kids can probably skip that part!), as well as celebrity chef demonstrations, masterclasses and appearances from award-winning Marina Bay Sands signature restaurants, who’ll be showcasing their popular dishes. There’ll also be a well-stocked marketplace with a dizzying array of festive choices, ranging from holiday treats to wines and cheeses. But what we’re especially excited about are all the ultra-fun kids’ activities the folks at Marina Bay Sands have got planned. Want to know more? We’ve got all the deets you need to know:

Have a (snow) ball of a time at Santa’s North Pole
While Mum and Dad are busy wining, dining, sampling gourmet food and gift shopping at the market, the kids can busy themselves with heaps of fun activities – all for FREE! Just head over to the Santa’s North Pole section of the Market where there’ll be a bouncy castle to burn bucketloads of energy on, Daytona car racing, balloon sculpting, face painting and even claw machines so the kids can try their luck to win cute soft toys. And that’s not all – there are even going to be carnival game classics like basketball, Whack the Frog and Toss the Ring and for the little football fan, a penalty kick station. Of course, they’ve thought of the arts and craftsy kids too with a gingerbread man decorating station. Before you go, don’t forget to snap a selfie or grab a family pic with Ol’ Saint Nick himself!
