George Town Festival is an annual, month-long celebration of arts, culture, heritage and community. Inaugurated in 2010 in honour of George Town’s designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Originally a two-day festival with tight funding and space, the festival has blossomed into an annual tradition that transforms the city into a global stage, showcasing world-class performances, installations and collaborations from international and local artists alike. Drawing thousands of visitors each year to Penang, George Town Festival is quickly becoming one of Asia’s must-see.
