Sanur Village Festival 2018
We welcome you again to the Sanur Village Festival 2018. For the Bali and Indonesia tourism calendar, August is the month for Sanur community’s festival. This annual festival will be held on 22-26 August 2018 at Pantai Matahari Terbit Sanur, Denpasar.
In line with tourism industry growth in Bali, Sanur community realizes that they must continually develop to exist as a world class tourism destination. Sanur village festival journey, since its first inception in 2006 has proven its ability to accommodate Sanur community innovation and creativity that goes hand in hand with the tourism industry needs.
With this spirit, creativity and hard work, Sanur Village Festival has been able to develop an independent festival. This is evident as international tourists note the annual agenda when planning their visit to Sanur. Sanur Village Festival has also been appointed as the Top 10 Indonesia Tourism for 2018.
This year’s Sanur Village Festival is themed Mandala Giri. This theme is based on the idea to refocus attention to Mount Agung. When Mount Agung volcanic activity raised in November 2017 and continues to erupt until present, this fact makes us reflect on our humanity, brotherhood and approach to nature.
The increased volcanic activity of Mount Agung has been reviewed scientifically, but it can also be considered spiritually as signs from nature that bring awareness to the people to exercise wisdom for the future. Through this spirit, we gathering the strength that makes us aware to have empathy, ‘menyama braya’, respect and give the best to the environment. Bali community’s life philosophy of Tri Hita Karana reminds us to preserve Bali, both physically and spiritually.
Please enjoy the Sanur Village Festival 2018, Salam rahayu, menyama braya and respect to nature.
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti Om
