Makepung Buffalo Races

Enrich your trip with a taste of one of Bali’s most unusual—and enduring—traditions. From July to November 2017, the Makepung Buffalo Races celebrate the animal that has been indispensable to Bali’s agrarian heritage. Originating centuries ago, the festival has evolved over time and now includes the races as well as whimsical events like the buffalo fashion shows, which is exactly what it sounds like.
