Event description
Beyond your favourite brunch spots and coffee nooks, join us to see the familiar Jalan Besar through an unfamiliar lens after hours!

About this event

Jalan Besar leads an almost Jekyll and Hyde existence – in the day, it is populated by the hip and fashionable, and at night colourful characters and businesses reveal themselves. Walk into the nooks and crannies of the neighbourhood, snake around the back alleys and enter the ‘forbidden’ stairways with Jan and immerse yourself in the stories of this neighbourhood and the various communities that operate within!

Meet your guide, Jan!

Hello! I am Jan, tour guide and founder of oFFbeat Singapore! Working in Jalan Besar over the past few years has allowed me to observe the neighbourhood’s tremendous transformation in its profile of residents, visitors, workers and businesses. While the neighbourhood today is increasingly recognised as a go-to-destination to see and to be seen in, I want to show you its less visible side after hours and paint a picture of Jalan Besar that will surely tug at your heartstrings! See you then!

Organiser My Community Festival

Organiser of After Hours @ My Jalan Besar with Jan Chow

My Community Festival is a ground-up initiative showcasing Singapore’s best kept secrets and community stories through immersive tours, tastings and other cultural and heritage experiences.

4 Things To Know About The Festival

  • It is curated in collaboration with heritage practitioners, business owners, legacy brands as well as a number of religious and cultural institutions.
  • It builds upon the demand for culinary travel, cultural exploration and activity-based travel experiences - evident from the consumption habits of locals and tourists alike.
  • It aims to connect people from all walks of life through the festival platform in the hopes that they may go on to expand their social networks.
  • The festival has taken on an added dimension as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It serves as a means in which to re-introduce locals back to the island’s ethnic enclaves and to support local, legacy establishments in a triumphant display of resilience as a community. Let’s come together to celebrate the Singaporean spirit after a challenging 2020.
