The Borneo Cultural Festival (BCF) is a week-long celebration of food, music and dances celebrating the diverse cultural background of Sibu community such as Iban/Bidayuh/Orang Ulu, Malay/Melanau and Chinese. Richness of culture heritage in our motherland comprising multiracial beliefs and habits is texturing the uniqueness of Sarawak. This main objective of this event is to promote “beauty in ethnic diversity” within Borneo Island to the world.
BCF stands as Sibu biggest tourism event. This is a perfect time to mingle with the locals from all walks of life. Fringe events include trade shows, fun fair and stage shows.
Borneo Cultural Festival is an annual event organized by Sibu Municipal Council. It is free for the public. The Dataran Tun Tuanku Bujang (venue) is within walking distance of major hotels in the town centre.
