Balinese Festivals January & February 2014

In any given month there are many festivals, ceremonies and rituals taking place all around the island. Many ceremonies occur every 210 days and as such every few years ceremonies such as Galungan, Kuningan, Saraswati, Pagerwesi etc occur twice in the western calendar. So it is this year with all these holidays (and several others as well) occuring again in August. In addition to the ceremonies and observances  listed below your Bali hotel concierge (or better yet any Balinese taxi driver) will be able to assist you to find an interesting ceremony to attend. That being said, below are the most important festivals and ceremonies for January and February. And when attending any ceremony or festival, please keep in mind the tips outlined on the etiquette page.
