From 19 to 22 November 2011, a festive atmosphere will once again reign over Bali as the exciting fiestas of the Sanur Village Festival, the National Flora Week, the Denpasar Festival, and Indonesia Horticulture Festival 2011 get underway on the Matahari Terbit or Sunrise Beach at Sanur.

Held for the sixth time, this year the Sanur Village Festival continues to ride on its main theme: “The New Spirit of Heritage” which emphasises the preservation of traditional cultural values imbued with a new spirit and new identity. After its huge success last year, the organizers are preparing to make this an even better and bigger event. This year, the Sanur Village Festival promises plenty of water sports and adventure. The event is inspired by marine life which plays a vital role in the daily life of the Balinese. Organized by the local community of Sanur, the Sanur Village Festival has made waves internationally and has become a fixed annual event since 2006.

The timing and the larger area for the event was deliberately chosen to include the Indonesia Horticulture Festival 2011 which this year will merge with the Sanur Festival.

The National Flora Week 2011 is a national horticultural exhibition of an international nature, that is held on a rotation basis among regencies and cities in Indonesia. This year it is the turn of Bali to host the 4th Festival which involves all of the 33 provinces of Indonesia, national and international businesses in the horticultural sector, as well as leading agriculture academics.The National Flora Week will also be a meeting place for producers, business people, researchers, plant and flower lovers, and general visitors to share information and do business. Horticulture lovers as well as the general public will also have an opportunity to spoil themselves with unique and beautiful horticultural products.

Adding to the festivity, the Denpasar Festival, an annual event held by the Denpasar Government to promote the city as a tourist destination,will likewise display unique and outstanding products, artworks, as well as other creative forms produced by the people of Denpasar.

These three events blend in perfectly and synergize with the Indonesia Horticulture Festival 2011, a national-scale event which, in terms of promotion, products, business, exhibition participants and visitors, is of international quality.
