EVENTS 2015

SAGO FESTIVAL  (Pesta Rumbia)
Kuala Penyu town 11 - 12 JULY 2015

 

This festival celebrates the sago plant and all things derived from it.  Almost every part of the tree has a use -  from the pulp which is processed so that it can be eaten in place of rice, to the fronds which had once been widely used as roofing,  and to the bark and branches which can be used as walling.

 

There are also traditional food sampling and other events are included.

 

It is a very interesting time and place to be in if you are interested in culture and tradition.
