4th July 2016 - WEB TEASER
 
 
Time to celebrate the American spirit in Singapore – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – all at the American Association of Singapore’s annual Independence Day Celebration in partnership with Singapore American School! This exciting family event will be held on Saturday, July 2, 2016 from 4pm to 10pm at Singapore American School. It features a full day of fun, music, food, drinks and patriotism, capped off by formal ceremonies and a spectacular fireworks display.

This event is completely not-for-profit, and as such, depends 100% on the support of the community.  AAS has never charged an admission fee for the Independence Day Celebration. We feel it is our duty to celebrate in true American style with the whole community in Singapore.

Admission is free of charge and open to the public. All are welcome to attend.
