VivoCity puts a Spring in Your Step this Lunar New Year

“Treasure the Splendour of Spring” will be a celebration replete with fun discoveries, shopping and gourmet experiences for the whole family!

Singapore, January 2016 – This Lunar New Year, VivoCity transforms into your festive haven, where you get to shop to your heart’s content and cross off your entire shopping list – all in one cosy milieu. The marquee highlight – TANGS Chinese New Year Fair – is a 5,195 sq ft atrium fair featuring more than 40 vendors, offering a comprehensive array of Chinese New Year goodies and must-haves.

“The Chinese New Year celebration is a highly anticipated tradition for VivoCity. ‘Treasure the Splendour of Spring’ aims to fulfil all the festive needs of our shoppers under one roof while spreading cheer through spirited performances and interactive activities. Paying homage to the year of the Fire Monkey, the Chinese zodiac display featuring an 18 ft tall lighted monkey mascot at The Plaza will present wonderful opportunities for a family photo,” says Ms. Joanna Lee, Head of Retail Management, Mapletree Commercial Property Management. “The Chinese New Year Fair is also back this year, offering everything from goodies to ornaments that our shoppers need to host a memorable celebration with their loved ones,” she adds.

The merriment continues on the weekends with the appearances of Fu-Lu-Shou and the God of Fortune making their rounds to wish everyone a prosperous new year. Fans of Wen Yang Lion Dance Troupe can also catch some show-stopping action as they defy gravity to perform acrobatic stunts such as ‘Cai Qing’ and the ‘Mei Hua Zhuang’ segment, where the skilled lion dancers perform atop metal stilts measuring up to 6 ft tall!



19 January – 6 February 2016

Returning once again to VivoCity’s Central Court, the TANGS-VivoCity Chinese New Year Fair features more than 40 vendors who will cover all your festive-shopping needs. Get the ornaments and adornments you need to transform your house into one that befits the celebrations, as well as festive favourites such as pineapple tarts, Chinese sausages, abalone and many more delights to keep your guests satisfied during visitations.

The Plaza, located at Level 1 at VivoCity lights up every night with a festive display of the Chinese Zodiac. Taking centre stage will be the 18 ft tall monkey mascot that lights up from within, surrounded by the rest of the 11 zodiac animals in lively animated poses.
