Food lovers are in for a treat as Singapore’s biggest ever gourmet event, The GREAT Food Festival (TGFF), will take place next month from 21 to 24 September. The festival, which will take place over an area of over 215,000 square feet, is a collaboration between Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) and Savour Events, an international gourmet festival curator.

“This will be the biggest gourmet event to be held at RWS and the largest in Singapore, setting a new benchmark for food festivals in Asia,” said Senior Vice President of Hospitality at RWS, Yim Choong Hing.

Darren Chen, Executive Director of Savour Events, said, “We are excited to build the pinnacle of food festivals in Singapore… The common vision (with RWS) to curate one-of-a-kind gourmet experiences through TGFF will reinforce Singapore’s reputation as the city of choice for dining in the region.”
