Kicking off on 25 May at Supertree Grove, this will be the only Inside Out 2-themed outdoor carnival in Southeast Asia with large-scale installations.

Get in touch with your emotions ahead of the 13 June release of Inside Out 2 in Singapore. 

Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 returns to the mind of newly minted teenager Riley who’s about to begin high school, just as headquarters is undergoing a sudden demolition to make room for something entirely unexpected: new Emotions! Joining the core Emotions is a group of new arrivals perfectly suited for the teenage years! 

Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival runs until 22 June and most of the activities are free.

Gardens by the Bay CEO Felix Loh said, “We all want our children to be happy and healthy. This year we are excited to team up with Disney for the 10th edition of Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival. Kids can learn about stress and emotions in a fun way through relatable characters and heartwarming stories such as those from Disney and Pixar. More importantly, the event will allow families to bond and spend meaningful time together.”

Singapore Tourism Board’s Director of Attractions, Entertainment and Tourism Concept Development Ashlynn Loo said, “We are thrilled to support Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival – the only place in Southeast Asia where families can enjoy an Inside Out 2-themed outdoor carnival with large-scale installations. We hope visitors will enjoy the fresh and captivating experiences by exploring the various zones inspired by Inside Out 2’s Emotions. As we continue to welcome more visitors back to Singapore, we look forward to bringing more compelling leisure experiences that will appeal to both local and international visitors, as part of our continued collaboration with Disney, solidifying our position as a vibrant leisure and entertainment destination.”

This year, Gardens by the Bay’s Children’s Festival is held in conjunction with the month-long National Family Festival, led by the Families for Life Council and its partners across the people, public and private sectors to celebrate families and to encourage everyone to prioritise family time.
