The inaugural Wellness Festival Singapore, running from 3 to 12 June 2022, marks the start of the country’s vigorous roll out of over 120 wellness offerings, featuring a wide selection of fitness classes, meditation workshops, arts and lifestyle experiences.

As Singapore sees the arrival of more international travellers, the upcoming festival is part of Singapore Tourism Board’s (STB) strategy to boost awareness of Singapore’s wellness offerings and position itself as a leading wellness destination. At the festival, Singapore will unveil the many large-scale attractions and activities.

"“Wellness Festival Singapore is central to our push for Singapore to be an urban wellness haven, and we are excited to partner both the public and private sectors to showcase our breadth of accessible wellness offerings," Ong Ling Lee, executive director of sports & wellness at STB stated. "As we emerge from the pandemic, we hope locals and visitors can rest and rejuvenate in Singapore, while discovering more of what our city has to offer.”
