The Harvest Festival (Gawai) is celebrated on a grander scale with the participations of cultural troupes from other countries. This year our friends from Nitto Rong Organization of Bangladesh and Kumpulan Batambul Rungus Matunggong of Sabah will be joining this year’s festival.

The main highlight of the World Harvest Festival (WHF) is the theme play which had received rave reviews from the media in the past. The WHF theme play utilises the lake, ethnic houses and trees as natural props which can only be produced in the Sarawak Cultural Village. Each year the play takes on a different ethnic theme.

Along with sampling of traditional food and crafts of the ethnic communities of Sarawak, there will also be a series of joint workshops by the local and invited cultural troupes. The ethnic beauty pageant lends colour and vibrancy to the event whereas brawn comes in the form of the Ironman World Harvest Festival competition.

The World Harvest Festival (WHF) is an ethnic festival that is one of the highlights of the Gawai Dayak celebration, the largest in Sarawak in terms of the community involved. WHF provides the opportunity for the non-Dayaks to understand the cultures, traditions and aspirations of the Dayak community. This will be the 11th year in the running.
