KUCHING (July 9): A total of 423 booths will be set up for this year’s Kuching Festival to be held from July 29 to August 21 at Kuching South City Council (MBKS) Dewan Masyarakat.

There will be 333 stalls for the food fair and 90 stalls for the trade fair.

Its organizing chairman, Goh Tze Hui, said they had finalized the stands and no more stands would be allowed.

“As can be seen, awnings have been set up near MBKS Dewan Masyarakat to pave the way for the 24-day Kuching Festival.

“This year’s Garden Show will see new light decorations, which should allow people to take photos for good memories. The booths of the show will be inside the Dewan Masyarakat,” he said during the South Kuching Mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng’s Facebook Live “Shall WEE Talk” today.

Goh also said that no straws or plastic bags would be allowed during the festival, which was themed “Kuching Best Creative Food and Culture.”

He also reminded everyone that the council banned polystyrene in 2019, while plastic straws were also banned from all hawker centers under MBKS jurisdiction.

He therefore advised festival-goers to bring their own recycling bags or containers.

Goh added that dinner, takeout and delivery will be offered this time around.

“Tables and chairs will be lined up for festival-goers – with social distancing observed,” he added.

Meanwhile, Wee said the 2022 Mayor’s Walk will be held on August 28, and free t-shirts will be given out to people who take part in the walk.

He added that the grand finale of Kuching’s Got Talent, a joint activity with the Kuching Festival, will be held on August 14.

Wee, in response to a question, said eight Chinese clan organizations will offer their respective specialties throughout the festival this year.

“We will announce which Chinese clan will offer their delicacies on which days at a later date,” Wee added.
