As part of "May the 4th" celebrations and to mark the 40th anniversary since the release of Star Wars: A New Hope, a three-day extravaganza - STAR WARS DAY: MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU Festival will take place at Gardens by the Bay from 04-06 May 2017.


Twice nightly at 7.45pm and 8.45pm, catch the Garden Rhapsody: STAR WARS Edition featuring a dazzling 15-min music and light composition. This multi-sensory treat, set against the epic STAR WARS soundtrack will take place over these three nights only at the Supertree Grove. To round off the night, hit the dance floor for some STAR WARS themed Silent Disco on 05-06 May.

Joining us all the way from a galaxy far, far away, one of the heroes of the Rebellion, Chewbacca and Kylo Ren, the dark warrior from the First Order will both be in town for the festival. Decked out in their own personalized custom made movie accurate costumes, catch the costume Fan Clubs, the 501st legion, Rebel Legion and FightSaber as your favorite characters. The iconic All-Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST) - first introduced in STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Back – will be standing guard at the Supertree Grove.

Participants can choose to experience the 4.5km route, joining the Rebellion on their plight for justice on the Light side, or walk in Darth Vader’s footsteps to uncover the great powers of the Dark side.
