Singaporean community-run festival, My Community Festival is back with its third edition, full of activities and tours taking place islandwide.

This year’s festival theme aims to explore the meaning of home, through educational experiences of Singapore’s hidden gems. 

Among its lineup this year is a series of educational trails through automotive workshops at Alexandra Village in Singapore, something that’ll be of interest to you petrolheads out there.

Organised by non-profit organisation My Community, My Community Festival is a programme that showcases Singapore’s community stories through cultural and heritage experiences. 

Among these is a programme titled Hello! My Alexandra Village, that takes participants through Singapore’s largest motor repair village. 

Taking place over the weekend of 13 August and 14 August 2022, there will be eight tours for seasoned petrolheads and new ones to learn more about auto repair and maintenance from professionals of the trade, some of whom have been there since the 1970s.

These tours include learning how vintage cars get restored to glory, how to avoid tricks when sending your car in for repair, and hear from one of the pioneer shops at Alexandra Industrial Village. 

Motorheads will not be left out too with a guide on how to properly upholster your bike seats.

Tickets to these programmes are free, and you can see their full list lineup here.

Keeping with the theme of exploring the meaning of home through Singapore’s hidden gems, the festival also offers you a glimpse into lesser known religions practiced in Singapore, home cooked dinners from various cultures residing in Singapore, and even get a glimpse to the early mornings at our local fishing ports.
