Cultural Show Daily Events

1 May 2015 (Cultural Extravaganza)
2 May 2015 (Premier Show)
3 May 2015 (Cultural Extravaganza)
The Sabah Fest is a prelude to the State-wide Harvest Festival celebration that incorporates dance, music, fashion, food and crafts that is ethnically Sabah. Widely known as Agop by many communities on the east coast, caves have been a definitive feature of their cultural identity spawning a wealth of folklore and ancient practices related to dwellings, deaths, burials as well as a supply of resources for present-day economic activities. The celebration of Agop this year takes us on an expedition mostly to the east coast of Sabah to sample the charms of the communities – Ida’an, Dusun Sungei, Begak and Dusun Subpan identified with the ancient cave culture and related on-going traditions and practices. Other rarely seen groups such as the Tidong of Tawau, Dusun Sandayoh of Paitan and Dusun Melangkap of Kota Belud will also be sharing the stage to perform and display their culture and musical traditions at this year’s Sabah Fest production – one of Sabah’s most anticipated annual premier events.
