Pesta Wira Melayu
Pesta Wira Melayu is a festival that celebrates anything and everything Malay. The
phrase Wira Melayu means 'Malay Heroes', which represents what this festival is all about.
During this festival, we will also hold the
Anugerah Wira Melayu Singapura 2018, which is the Malay Heroes Awards. This award
recognises Malays in Singapore who have been publicly nominated for their achievements in their respective fields. The festival
is organised in conjunction with World Malay Day, Hari Melayu Sedunia.
the festival theme is Back to Our Roots. The Orang Laut were the indigenous people of
Singapore, and the word Kallang refers to the first group that settled in
Singapore in the Kallang area. What better place to hold this festival than at Kallang Theatre?
can look forward to a full day of activities for the whole family. We have
special programmes for children, youths, and adults throughout the day. There will be exciting performances featuring song, dance and cultural elements.
You can look forward to a full day of bazaars and a festival full of firsts! We have the world's first and largest Malay ship-inspired
Bouncy Castle, and we will also be attempting the World Record for the Largest Communal Dining of
Nasi Ambeng Dulang (rice with dishes on a platter)!
At the same time, this
festival aims to raise funds for our Social Responsibility Programme: OneHeart
Charity. We hope this festival inspires Malays in the country to be proud of their identity, and to contribute and excel in all fields of society.
