Returning for a second helping: The GREAT Food Festival at Resorts World Sentosa (TGFF 2018)

Following its successful debut last year, The GREAT Food Festival (TGFF) will make its highly anticipated return to Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) from 27 to 30 September 2018. TGFF 2018 is set to build on the event’s growing reputation as the region’s must-attend event for discerning food lovers in Asia, and promises to satisfy fans with new concepts in addition to bringing back the oldie-but-goodie concepts.

TGFF 2018 will feature four thematic segments:

  • Star Chef Arena
  • Rollin’ Sweet Times
  • Feast of Kings
  • The Cellar (NEW!)
