About The Theme Dasa Warsa Sanur Village Festival

June 15, 2015


Nine years since it was first launched, Sanur Village Festival is a success as an independent tourism promotion effort that preserves and improves Sanur community ecology, economy, social cultural and creativity.

This success is generated by the support and close cooperation between three parties that have worked closely together during the decade of festival, Sanur’s community, government, and the private sector.

A decade of celebrations, the theme Dasa Warsa reflects how the festival has always been an icon people look forward to every yearThe 10 anniversary will be bigger and more festive with new and old programs loved by all the visitors.

Aside from the celebrations, One Decade of Sanur Village Festival should be a momentum to strengthen efforts in environment preservation, since many tourism activities tend to neglect ideals and philosophy practices by the Sanur community.

The first festival held back in 2006, which was a respond to the slowing of tourism post second Bali bombing (2005), still struggling from the first incident back in 2002. The following year, SVF II (2007) was launched with the theme “The New Spirit of Heritage” to give new spirit to the cultural ancestral heritage that preserved the coastal areas, environment and art creativity, and sustainable economy.

Afterwards the festival set themes in line with real development issues during the 9 years. Dasa Warsa is hoped to be Sanur starting point for expanding opportunities and facing future challenges. This destination competitiveness with its resources will encounter ASEAN economic society that demands consequence and high competency levels.

Sanur Village Festival among them will have cleaning the beach, reforestation, baby turtle release, surfing competition, fun run, jukung competition, food festival, fruit and ice carving, cultural parade, international kite festival, fishing tournament, body painting, photo competition, golf tournament, and musical performances. SME Bazaar and other creative products will be displayed during the Sanur Kreatif Expo.
