Locally known as Pesta Kesenian Bali, the Bali Arts Festival, which takes place from every second Saturday of June to the second Saturday of July, is a yearly celebration of the arts in all its forms – from music and dance, to art, photography, cuisine and literature. The month-long event gathers locals and international visitors together for a series of celebratory festivities, in a range of locations, primarily centered around the Bali Art Center in Denpasar. The festival begins with a parade of performers from all districts in Bali, as well as other Indonesian provinces, and each year the festival carries with it a “theme” which is illustrated in the various processions, exhibitions, competitions, seminars, and so forth. Enjoy daily performances and exhibitions, and discover more about the unique heritage of this fascinating island paradise. For more detailed information, visit www.baliartsfestival.com.
