the Bali Arts Festival has been the center for all things arts and culture in Bali since the 1980’s. This festival showcases Balinese art from all corners of the island and includes other activities as well, such as literature competitions, painting, parades, and traditional dance performances.
The festival is held for an entire month, running annually from Saturday 15th of June 2019 through Sunday 14th of July 2019. It is held this year at the Taman Werdhi Budaya Arts Center, in Panjer Denpasar. It is the perfect time for those in Bali to witness the immense diversity of culture, history, arts and tradition all in one festival. In addition to Balinese arts, the festival will also showcase the arts from all parts of Indonesia.
On the day of the opening, visitors are treated to a magnificent parade in front of the Bajra Sandhi monument in Denpasar. This is marked by dance performances, musicals, and other performances that showcase the diverse culture in Bali and in Indonesia. If you happen to be in Bali during the opening, it is definitely a show you don’t want to miss!
As we prefaced above, the festival runs for a month from mid-June to mid-July. The festival will be located in the Arts Center in Denpasar.
