The event is supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, which oversees the Orchard Road precinct. 

“The beauty of board sports has always been about being able to ride with anyone in the community while keeping a sense of individual expression on the board. Off the board, there’s also a dynamic community of riders who are creatives, musicians, and artists, whose works have brought people together. We intentionally chose to host a longer series of events with the TRIFECTA Festival so more people could discover this joy for themselves,” shared Alex Hsu, Co-founder of TRIFECTA. 

Guo Teyi, Director of Retail and Dining at the Singapore Tourism Board, said, “The opening of TRIFECTA will further diversify Orchard Road’s offerings and experiences while enhancing the appeal and youthful vibe of the Somerset sub-precinct. This is in line with the Government’s vision to transform Orchard Road into a must-visit lifestyle destination with distinctive visitor experiences that cater to the varied interests of visitors. We look forward to seeing visitors coming together and enjoying its opening festivities that cut across sports, community, art, and music.”
