The wait is over...

After years pouring through archival data and interviewing diverse community stakeholders, authors Lynn Wong and Lee Kok Leong present the first comprehensive book about the long-forgotten Qixi Festival which has disappeared in Singapore for over half a century.


Rediscover Qixi Festival >>>


Reimagining and reviving the Qixi Festival which has disappeared for half a century

Through fieldwork and first-hand interviews with diverse stakeholders, we uncover the different forms of intangible cultural heritage related to the Qixi Festival (e.g., social practices, rituals, traditional craftsmanship, food heritage, performing arts) 

... and collaborate with schools, institutions, and partners to give this traditional festival a new lease of life.

PAST EVENTS

QIXI BANQUET

In conjunction with the soft launch of the Reviving Qixi book on 30 July 2022, a Qixi-themed banquet in commemoration of the Majies was held, featuring traditional Shuntuk cuisine prepared by the Heavenly King at Red Star Restaurant.

QIXI FESTIVAL 2022

Attended by over 100 participants from all walks of life (and over 100 on waitlist), this was a significant milestone event as it has been more than half a century since a mass Qixi Festival celebration was held in Ngau Ce Seoi - one of the important hotspots of the festival in Singapore.

BOOK LAUNCH

Authored by Lynn Wong and Lee Kok Leong, this bilingual publication is the first to extensively document the Qixi Festival in Singapore: its trajectory and how it relates to our cultural identity.


This publication is supported by the National Heritage Board.

COMING SOON
