Here’s everything we know about the National Day Parade 2024. From the National Day concert to NDP activities at the Padang and Marina Bay on 9 August, new parade segments, fireworks, NDP heartland events and more!

This year’s National Day Parade is promising to be a big one! With the theme ‘Together, As One United People,’ the 2024 NDP will celebrate Singapore’s 59th birthday with parades at two venues on 9 August—the Padang and the Promontory @ Marina Bay. This means stunning fireworks displays across both areas, promising some of the biggest NDP fireworks yet. Plus, the festivities will extend beyond 9 August with NDP events at heartland locations around the island. What makes this year even more exciting is the introduction of new segments, including a ‘war fighting’ air-land-sea display! Here’s what to expect at NDP 2024, from crowd favourites like the Red Lions, the Presidential Gun Salute, fireworks, and much more.

There will be two venues to celebrate NDP 2024, the Padang and the Promontory @ Marina Bay. The main parade will be held at the Padang, and viewers can expect immersive programmes that extend from the Padang to Marina Bay. Look forward to crowd favourite programmes such as the Red Lions, State Flag Flypast, the Presidential Gun Salute and more. There will also be a few firsts at NDP 2024, including the new Total Defence 40 Dynamic Defence Display, which will feature an exciting air-land-sea display to depict a whole-of-government and community response to various threats and disruptions against the nation. Also to be performed for the first time at NDP 2024 will be the Onward March, where parade contingents will march onto the spectator stands, giving the viewers a more immersive experience.

Even though NDP 2024’s main venue is at the Padang, where most of the programmes will be held, viewers at the Promontory @ Marina Bay will get to enjoy the Total Defence 40 Dynamic Defence Display live, as this segment will take place at both venues. There will also be a sail-past by the President Gun Salute, along with stage performances and a live telecast of the NDP 2024 at the Padang.
