The annual Rice Harvest Festival marks the end of the Bali’s harvest season. Visitors are welcome to join in on the festivities and sample traditional cuisine cooked in honor of Dewi Sri, the Rice God. As part of the celebration the Negara Bull Races, a Balinese tradition, is held in Perancak at the end of the festival, where water buffaloes are decorated with ornate and colourful headdresses and compete in races. The Rice Harvest Festival is held in each year in May in various locations around Bali. Simply ask around to find out what’s going on in your area.
