Date: 7th June – 7th July 2013


George Town Festival is back and this year, from the 7th of June to 7th of July 2013.

 Commemorating George Town's 2008 inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this annual celebration is known as the biggest arts festival in Penang.

 The official launching of the ceremony will be happening on the 8th June 2013, 3.00pm at Padang Esplanade with a kite-flying ceremony.  Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas and Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng will be flying kites during the ceremony, joined by master kite makers and kite flyers from the  Philippines, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.


Other vents that will be happening throughout the month include “Secret Gardens of Earthly Delights,” a trail of art and greenery spread across 10 different sites (June 7 – July 7); “Bridges & Kaki Lima,” a traditionally-inspired street dance show that will take place in and around the five-foot ways of the shophouses along Victoria Street (June 29); and a three-day celebration of the George Town's UNESCO World Heritage Site status (July 5 – 7).
