Great news for foodies and those looking to have some fun.
From Oct. 21 to Dec. 31, Sentosa will be holding Sentosa Food Fest, a three-month islandwide food festival with four main events:
- GrillFest (Oct. 21 to Nov. 13)
- Restaurant Trail (Nov. 7 to 18)
- Food Truck Fiesta (Nov. 18 to 27)
- Craft Beer Jamboree (Nov. 25 to Dec. 4)
Sentosa is set to transform into a gastronomic haven with a myriad of food, cuisines, and F&B establishments available both on-island and off-island.
Eating and drinking aside, various fringe activities such as cooking workshops, wellness programmes, live music, movies by the beach, and more will allow a dollop of play besides consuming food.
Here’s what you can expect at Sentosa Food Fest, which will have free island and event entry:

The event grounds will be split into four grillin' zones.

Guests will be allowed to choose their meats and seafood and have it grilled before their eyes, customised to their liking and served with a selection of sides.
