Rainforest Fringe Launch

Rainforest Fringe Official Launch

The Rainforest Fringe has just been launched promising an interesting array of 10 days events meant to warm up the early bird fans both locals and abroad who are streaming into Kuching for the Rainforest World Music Festival 2017 . The different sideline activities which will be held before the the main event on 14th to 16th July 2017 are also attractive in its own way displaying the rich cultural and arts resources that are mostly Sarawak based. So it was at the Sarawak Tourism Complex (the Old Court House) the program took off. Simple but meaningful, the ceremony was officiated by the Sarawak’s Honourable Minister for Tourism, Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah and those present included his two Assistant Ministers YB Datuk Lee Kim Shim and YB Snowdan Lawan. Those who were present and those who will be participating in the various upcoming events are encouraged to share their activities in social media using the hashtags #rainforestfringe #rwmf2017 .
