Ubud Food Festival

In 2017, the Ubud Food Festival will return for its third year from 12-14 May. Alongside Indonesian chefs, restaurateurs, producers and food professionals, celebrated culinary icons from around the world will dish up a program rich in fresh tastes and fresh ideas. This year, the Ubud Food Festival will be infused with the theme ‘Every flavor is a story’. The theme celebrates Indonesia’s culinary heritage, in which every ingredient, recipe and culinary tradition tells a story of the archipelago’s history, geography and diverse cultures. Across the Festival’s three-day program, members of the culinary industry and food lovers alike will unpack flavors, traditions and regional influences to deepen their understanding of not just what food tells us – but of the stories we tell through food.

BALI ARTS FESTIVAL

The Bali Arts Festival is a cultural treat for lucky visitors who are in Bali until mid July. The festival traditionally starts on the second Saturday of June and runs through the month of July. It is the perfect moment to witness Bali’s wealth of performing arts together with various cultural highlights from other islands in Indonesia. As one of the main highlights in Bali’s calendar of events, the annual celebration features various artworks and cultural achievements, inviting locals and international visitors to the Taman Werdhi Budaya Arts Centre in Denpasar where most of the daily exhibitions and art performances are focused.
