Civic District Outdoor Festival at the Civic District
August 11 & 12, 5pm to 11pm

If you’ve always wanted a pet bunny but are allergic to fur, this art event is for you.

You can have a picnic while being surrounded by giant furless bunnies (because art) and watching buildings get lit up with multimedia projections (also because art).

Here are more things you can do there.

Heritage Carnival 2017 at Sentosa’s Palawan Green
Till August 13, 11am to 9pm

You don’t need a DeLorean (or to be old) to experience what life was like during Singapore’s kampung days.

Besides eating local dishes like chendol and nonya kueh at this carnival, you can also take photos with people dressed as old-school villagers.

So you’ll have proof that you actually left your house for something other than school or work.

“Eat Well Do Good” at PARKROYAL and Pan Pacific
Till August 15

This initiative is for people who like to eat, but don’t like the guilt that comes with it.

For a limited time, one per cent of all proceeds from the dinner buffets of all five Pan Pacific Hotels Group hotels will be donated to The Food Bank Singapore.

Now this can be you, even after you’ve eaten more than five food babies worth of food.


SINGAWHORE exhibition at 195 Pearl’s Hill Terrace, #03-05
August 11 to September 3, 2017 (closed on Mondays), 12pm to 8pm

An art exhibition with #nofilter, SINGAWHORE will feature previously unseen pieces by A Good Citizen exploring politics, gender, race and religion.

It’ll be like Cards Against Humanity, but with art instead of words.

Singapore Really Really Free Market at Maplewood Park
August 13, 2pm to 6pm

Everything is free at this event. Books, CDs, toys, food. Everything.

So you can pretend you’re a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

You probably won’t get a free car though, via GIPHY
