What is Georgetown Festival?

“The George Town Festival is a month-long celebration of the inscription of George Town on the UNESCO World Heritage Listing on 7th July, 2008. Scheduled to be an annual event, the Festival is a feast of theater, music, dance, film, art, opera, food, fashion, photography, and inspirational talks.”Georgetown Festival

This year the Georgetown Festival 2011 kicked off on a bright and beautiful day.

The first 3 days, inner city Georgetown comes bursting alive with many free exhibitions, street performances and open houses. The 3 day event has been named Tapestry of Cultures. The following are exhibitions at the recently restored Whiteaways Arcade.

A break for lunch at Water Drop Teahouse.

Next stop are the open houses at St George Church (oldest Angelican church on the island), Penang Supreme Court and Penang Museum (no photography allowed).

As we move towards the evening, almost every street corner in the heritage enclave has street food vendors, bazaars, performances and the finale, a multi-cultural show at Khoo Kongsi.
