Been to a Peranakan wedding before? Know any dance moves for the party? Tip: It’s the Joget dance. Ever tried dishes from a Tok Panjang feast? Sample them here. Also come get dressed in Baba and Nyonya outfits for added fun!


George Town Heritage Celebrations this year has conceived Let’s Celebrate - Rituals and Festive Events as its valued theme, marking the 11th anniversary of George Town’s inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The theme looks into a diverse range of rituals and festive events, such as the commemoration of traditional and cultural events, birth celebrations, wedding ceremonies, and major celebrations to honour deities. People of George Town live in harmonious coexistence through the understanding of multicultural traditions that have been passed down through generations despite the differences in ethnic and culture.

The annual community-driven Celebrations - Site Excursions programme aims to enrich visitors with experiences of culture and tradition through engaging activities with George Town's local communities.

Stay tuned, more updates coming!
