Remember Artbox Singapore, the massively popular Bangkok flea market which debuted in April 2017 in Marina Bay? The fair made the news for multiple complaints about the 300,000-strong crowd and long queues to get in during its opening weekend.

Artbox Singapore posted on its Instagram account earlier this month that the fair is coming back for its second edition in May 2018 at Marina Bay.

Running from 25 to 27 May and 1 to 3 June 2018, the fair will be taking over the entire Bayfront Event Space at Marina Bay, covering some 140,000 square feet. This is more than double the size of the previous edition, which took up 50,000 square feet.

Calling itself Singapore’s largest creative market, Artbox will feature 400 or so creative makers and partners from Singapore and the region. The market promises interactive elements and activities for visitors of all ages, art installations, and a variety of food offerings.

A social media post on Fleawhere, an Instagram account run by Invade – the creative retail space and events company behind Artbox – is calling for vendors to register for booths at the fair.
