The Sanur Village Festival or SVF is back in action with its 13-year running celebration being held in August 22 – 26 of 2018. The theme of this year’s festival will be “Mandala Giri”, interpreted as “mountain” and will illustrate the spirit of thought behind Mount Agung and the eruption that occurred in November 2017. As always, the anticipated week will be filled with all types of entertainment including art exhibitions, fashion shows, cultural bazaars, culinary challenges and tastings, yoga, sports activities and environmental awareness programs. Also highlighting the festival will be the international kite festival, an exotic jukung (traditional boat) festival and a Sanur Run. Most festivities will be focused on the Inna Grand Bali Beach Hotel area, with new activities being added to various venues around Sanur. If you’re into surfing or fishing, this year will also feature tournaments around the sublime coastal waters Sanur has to offer.
