Since 1996, the Bali Tourism Development Corporation BTDC has held an annual festival supported by all components of the local community, called the Nusa Dua Festival. Since last year the name has been changed to the Nusa Dua Fiesta. The Nusa Dua Fiesta is also part of the government’s Visit Indonesia Year 2008 program.
Costing an estimated US$100.000 and supported by 20 stakeholders, 13 hotels and 7 tourism operations – the festival will once again feature cultural performances, live musical performance, sporting events, contests and product exhibitions:
A wood carving and painting exhibition, kid’s carnival and a family day, a golf tournament, a cabaret show and country Western music on stage, and there will be various competitions in karaoke, drawing, fruit and vegetable carving, sand sculpture, traditional food eating and Balinese costumes.
This years theme of the fiesta is Green Tourism, following the United Nations Climate Change Conference at Nusa Dua in December 2007. Therefore the Nusa Dua Fiesta will also conduct a series of environmental awareness programs
The event ends on 14 October with a great show attended by Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika, big fireworks and a Padma Nareswari performance by the Guruh Soekarno Putra Group.
