The 19th edition of the Singapore HeritageFest (SHF) returns over four weekends from May 2-29, 2022.
Presented by the National Heritage Board (NHB), SHF 2022 will offer more than 120 on-site and online heritage experiences that beckon Singaporeans from all walks of life to explore the lesser-known stories of our local heritage and culture.
