8TH EDITION OF BEDUDUN FESTIVAL AND BUFFALO RACES WILL BE BACK THIS OCTOBER
Bedudun Festival and Buffalo Races highlights the traditions of Limbang’s Malay community, who enjoy visiting pa’dian (relatives) houses during the festive season. It is a yearly event centred around buffalo racing. Cooking demonstrations of local delicacies and some other modern-day events such as body-building competitions, and other sports tournaments are also among the activities. Although the venue is usually held in rotation at several riverine towns, this year it will be held for the 8th time in Kampung Meritam, Limbang from 14th to 16th October 2022.
The highlight of this festival is the buffalo race, which is a local tradition reflecting Limbang’s agricultural history and has now become a tourist attraction. Furthermore, top-spinning and cooking ambuyat (sago) are also key aspects of the three-day event.
The purpose of the program is to strengthen relationships and solidarity among the Limbang community. There will be a bedudun tradition (visiting), which will be held at the traditional Limbang Malay houses that are iconic for the community.
