George Town Festival
1st Floor, 86 Lebuh Armenian, 10200 George Town, Penang, Malaysia
George Town Festival is an annual, month-long celebration of arts, culture, heritage and community. Inaugurated in 2010 in honour of Penang’s designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the festival showcases over 100 world-class performances, displays and installations from Penang and abroad. Throughout the month of the Festival, the city of George Town comes alive as streets and five-foot ways are transformed into stages, theatres and galleries. By combining the traditional and the contemporary, the Festival offers something for everyone. Because of its international caliber and its unique exhibitions, George Town Festival draws thousands of visitors each year to Penang.
George Town Festival will be held 1–31 August 2015. Tourists and locals can see many of the performances and exhibits free of charge, while others require a nominal fee.
