George Town Festival

July 29 - August 28, 2016

Event: George Town Festival
Venue: George Town, Penang, Malaysia

The annual George Town Festival has become one of the more significant cultural happenings in the region. The month-long celebration of the arts was first launched in 2010, when the area was designated as an official UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today, visitors can take in dozens of performances, including Missing, an award-winning experimental show by U.K. physical dance theater troupe Gecko, and Chekara, a fusion of flamenco with Moroccan, gypsy and Spanish Christian tunes from Andalucia.
