The Pesona Tambora Festival is again held by the West Nusa Tenggara Tourism Office. This event has been annually carried out since 2015 to commemorate the eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815. If you have come to this event before, you must know how exciting it can be. This year, let’s come again on 4 and 5 June 2022 to feel the excitement again.

Unlike last year, which was only held for one day, Tambora Festival 2022 gives a different kind of excitement for two days. It is located at several locations and offers various tourist spots to explore.

The Pesona Tambora Festival is held so that tourism in West Nusa Tenggara is increasingly recognized by the wider community, and the economy can improve. Tourism, creative actors, artists, and studios are involved in this event.

Pesona Tambora Festival 2022 has various activities, such as Gebyar Tambora as an opening ceremony, arts and cultural performances, and the Goes To Tambora Tourism Village. In addition, there will be training and certification of tour guides that you can follow too!


The excitement of the competition in the tourist village

Various competitions will be held in several popular tourist destinations. Starting from the Ornamental Boat Competition in Bima Bay, Pacuan Jara, traditional dance, photo, video, and coloring competitions will be held at Lapadi Dompu. Don't miss the Tambora Go to UGGp International Geopark Seminar, talk shows, and Samota Exploration activities.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, the Festival of Pesona Tambora 2022 also prepares exhibitions for SMEs and local creatives. You will find various products that are unique to West Nusa Tenggara. So you can't wait to join the event and shop for local products, right?


Flashback to the memorable Pesona Tambora Festival 2021

Pesona Tambora Festival 2021 was very different from this year because the public could only watch it live streaming on the NTB Provincial Tourism Office's YouTube Channel. However, this did not reduce the excitement to commemorate the eruption of Mount Tambora and celebrate the anniversary of Dompu Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, last year.

The event, which was held on April 11, 2021, provided education about the history of the eruption of Mount Tambora to introduce local arts and culture. Three main activities were successfully carried out, starting from the Creative Economy Exhibition, Fashion Rimpu Tambora, to Thanksgiving night.
