This year, Sabah Tourism Board and Sri Pelancongan Sabah will be showcasing yet another grand-scale musical theatre performance, ‘The Legend of the Supirak Stone Ark‘, a Kota Belud folklore which tells the story of a disobedient young man cursed into stone by his own mother. Featuring local performers, the story is told through a stunning presentation of both traditional and contemporary song and dance.
Local craft makers and artisans will also gather to display and sell their craftsmanship throughout the event. Food enthusiasts can also visit the traditional stalls to sample a variety of authentic local cuisine. Come and witness Sabah in all her colours during Sabah Fest 2017!
Sabah Fest is Sabah’s most anticipated annual premier cultural event, to celebrate Sabah’s smorgasbord of culture, history, and traditions. It is a celebration of Sabah’s rich and diverse cultures through musical theatre and exhibitions under one roof. This three-day event will also highlight Sabah’s rich cultural heritage through a handicraft and traditional food showcase at the venue grounds. Come sample the authentic flavours of Sabah and see how local craftspeople weave, carve and stitch using age-old techniques! Before the stage performance starts, guests are treated to traditional dance Pocket Shows at the Mini Amphitheatre, performed by the dancers of JKKN Sabah.
