Singapore Chili Crab Festival

The Singapore Chili Crab Festival began in 2004.


http://www.tigerbeer.us/newyork/history.php#
Sunday,August 6th, Tiger Beer is proud to present the 3rd Annual Tiger Beer Singapore Chili Crab Festival! We will once again take over the Brooklyn waterfront and give it the vibrancy and excitement of a massive Singaporean Street fair.

We would like to thank The Singapore Tourism Board, International Enterprise (IE) Singapore, Singapore Food Industries, and the Water Street Restaurant and Lounge for co-sponsoring this fantastic event! Join us this year as we again bring you a festival like nothing else found in New York or even the US!

Food and entertainment for everyone !!!

In addition to chili crabs, other authentic Asian delectables will be available. Entertainment will include live band performances, souvenir vendors, children’s street entertainment, massage therapy, traditional lion dancers, pedicab rides and kickboxers from Gleason’s Gym.

A Unique Experience.

“We want to give New Yorkers the opportunity to savor the local flavors from Singapore and Southeast Asia and experience Singapore’s unique “street food market” culture that allows locals to eat and drink on the streets,” explains Sean Davis, Market Development Manager, Tiger Beer USA. “This year, we are expecting more than 5,000 visitors at our free-admission, water front festival, and we can’t wait for everyone to have a good time with good food and Tiger Beer.”

Come down and bring your friends and family and enjoy a festival that you can find nowhere else in the city!
