Home >> Our Events >> Arts Fiesta

Held annually in the October/November period, the SP Arts Fiesta is a month-long festival of dance, music and theatre. Throughout the festival month, there will be concerts and productions put up by our performing arts clubs featuring the best of SP’s talents from contemporary Jazz to classical Chinese orchestra, band, cultural and contemporary dances, etc. There are also arts and music workshops conducted by local artistes for SP students. Other than providing an opportunity for our Arts & Culture clubs to showcase their “wares”, it is also an avenue for the SP community to develop an appetite for the Arts.

The SP Arts Fiesta 2020 Virtual Edition presents Vitality. Despite the difficulties, the vitality of our creative spirits and technology work hand in hand to bring Arts Fiesta through 10 years and beyond. The show must go on…

In the blink of an eye, the SP Arts Fiesta has come into its 10th year! In light of the COVID-19 situation, we have fully embraced the World Wide Web to come up with our inaugural live-stream edition of SP Arts Fiesta!

This year’s Arts Fiesta aims to revitalise those who have suffered during this distressing period. For five days, you get to experience a series of hour-long episodes filled with music, dance and drama of varying genres! Each episode is formed through blood, sweat, tears, and an abundance of disinfectant. Catch the trailer here
