DENPASAR, – This year’s Denpasar Festival (Denfest) has entered its 16th year. The Denpasar City Government confirmed that it will again hold this activity from 22 to 25 December.

In fact, a number of preparations have started to be made, such as a culinary stand on Jalan Gajah Mada. What’s different about this year’s Denfest is that the Badung Market grounds are no longer used. The previous year, the courtyard at Badung Market was used as a craft stand.

Head of the Denpasar City Tourism Office, Ni Luh Putu Riyastiti, confirmed, Wednesday (6/12) that the preparation process for the 16th Denfest was underway. In fact, a coordination meeting was only held once to finalize the layout and placement of UKM and IKM stands.

Apart from that, installments are also paid for the installation of stands in the form of tetaring which is a characteristic of Denfest. Riyastiti revealed that on Jalan Gajah Mada the stand installation process currently only reaches the front of the BPD Bali Bank Office.

Later, Denfest will be held in the Jalan Gajah Mada area in front of the BPD Bali Bank Office towards the Catur Muka Statue. The area will be filled with culinary stands and coffee sellers who have passed curation. Meanwhile, Jalan Veteran will focus on fashion, agro and craft products.

In fact, at the Inna Bali Hotel there will also be a special fashion show stage. Meanwhile, the field will be centered as an entertainment area.

Later there will be two stages there, namely traditional performances and modern performances. There is also a snack stand so visitors can watch the show while eating.

Riyastiti said, currently there are 162 participants who have passed the curation for UKM. A total of 87 businesses are from the craft, fashion and agro categories. Meanwhile, 75 businesses are from the culinary and coffee categories.

Funds for holding Denfest this year reached IDR 3.3 billion, which came from the Denpasar City Regional Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBD). (Asmara Putera/balipost)
