Borneo Cultural Festival

Borneo Cultural Festival

Borneo Cultural Festival

An annual event for Sibu, it is an ideal opportunity to see, first hand and close up, the various ethnic groups and their cultures in a single location – the Town Square. An extraordinary event held during the entire first week of July, visitors get to mingle with the performers and sample their dances and songs, games and learn unique aspects of their cultures. Theme ‘Beauty in Ethnic Diversity’, the Festival in its seventh year running, is unique and only one of its kind in the state, drawing visitors from far and near to sample this gathering of multi-ethnic cultures in a convenient and conducive location.

As like previous years, three main corners will be dedicated to the major groups of Dayaks, Malays/ Melanaus and Chinese with their own array of traditions and cultures being on display for the week. On the last three days of the festival, all the groups will converge onto the main stage in a single performance, which is representative of the close harmony of the different races living here in Sarawak!

There are dance and songs performances nightly during the festival for people to enjoy and appreciate the different ethnic cultures and traditions of Sarawak. It is difficult and also expensive to visit all the different places where the performers come from in Sarawak and so this is the opportune time to see them and learn about them. As occupancy rate will be high during this time, make your bookings early then sit back and be entertained nightly by the colorfully clad and graceful dancers. In conjunction with the festival, the Borneo Cultural Trade and Expo is also held during the entire week, giving visitors opportunity to browse through the numerous types of trades and other services on display.
