OmNomNom Feastival at ION Orchard


Food, again. But don’t get us wrong, we aren’t complaining. Conveniently located at ION Orchard, this weekend’s definitely going to be a treat, both for shoppers and foodies alike. The “feastival” is a team effort between Free Folk and Imaginators Studios, bringing to us a haven of local culinary creations, artisanal food and a trove of lifestyle products from independent designers and shops. What we’re really excited about is the highly-raved Rainbow Bagels from WORD – yes, the same unicorn rainbow bagels that has already been making its appearance at the Ramadan Bazaar at Geylang Serai. Also, there’ll be lots of local flavours you’ll be familiar with at the festival, including salted yolk fries and the famous Everton Parks ang ku kueh.

Time: 10am – 10pm
Venue: ION Orchard B4 Event Hall
