Entry to festival open on 14-15 September

The Nyamai Sarawak Gastronomy Festival 2024 will be held this coming 13 – 15 September at the Sarawak Cultural Village (SCV).

According to a news report by Borneo Post, the festival will celebrate Sarawak’s rich and diverse culinary heritage with the festival highlights including culinary challenges, and a mega gastronomy buffet.

The news article further says that the festival will also support local farmers and the sustainability agenda through its ‘from farm to table’ concept.

This will be done by highlighting the journey of local produce harvested to being served on the table.

The second edition of this festival is regarded as the ‘Malaysia Day Edition’ as it falls close to Malaysia Day which is on 16 September.
