Tadau Ka'amatan (Harvest Festival)

The Ka’amatan is an age-old ceremony celebrated in order to appease the rice spirits in the northern district of Kota Marudu and it marks the launching of Sabah’s month-long Kaamatan or Harvest Festival celebrations. It acts as a Thanksgiving Day for a bountiful harvest by the locals there with various cultural and traditional sports events such as slingshot competition, arm wrestling, and stilt-walking games. The crowning of the Harvest Queen would mark the close of this prosperous celebration. Visitors are welcome for a taste of this traditional festival as well as to enjoy and participate in the various competitions and activities. It’s a great opportunity for visitors to experience the hospitality and celebrations of the Sabahans.
