George Town Festival 2010: Celebration of Arts & Heritage

I am thrilled to announce that the George Town Festival is coming our way as our beloved George Town celebrates its 2nd anniversary as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 7th July 2010. We will see a month-long celebration featuring over 80 programs starting on July 1st. 

The George Town Festival will present a variety of theatre, music, dance, film, arts, food, fashion, photography, inspirational talks and visual spectacles on the streets. Exciting programmes include a heritage shophouse trail, everyone’s favorite Nyonya theatre - “Emily of Emerald Hill”, spectacular Chinese Opera by Ghaffar Pourazar, screening of movies shot in Penang, and so on.

George Town will be the stage for different artistic communities from local and international schools, cultural groups, and professional performers.

If you are planning on a holiday in July, come join us in Penang for this memorable occasion. The George Town Festival 2010 promises you a fiesta of ARTS and HERITAGE!

Help us to spread the word! For more information, please visit: www.georgetownfestival.com

Sounds great, I hope to catch some of it when I am in Penang! Thanks for the info, I love reading about Penang because we used to visit it every weekend from Alor Setar and we would take the ferry. This was before the bridge was built and I have many fond memories of Penang. We almost made a decision to move there but chose to move to the US instead, because it was a once in a lifetime chance. I am not sure if we made the right choice, but I do trawl blogs to find news about Penang.

Hi Grace, it's wonderful to know that you are still keeping up with Penang news although you are now an ocean apart. Those ferries are still in running condition. Do catch a ride when you are back.
