Langkawi Festivals & Events
Every year, Langkawi festivals and events transform this typically tranquil island into a vibrant hub that’s filled with cultural performances, food markets, and colourful decorations. As a multicultural nation, Malaysia celebrates a number of annual festivals all year long, including Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Christmas, but Langkawi Island also commemorates a number of relatively unique religious events.
Attracting visitors from across the globe, Langkawi also hosts internationally-acclaimed events such as golfing tournaments, water sports and strongmen competitions, trail runs, food fiestas, aerospace and maritime exhibitions, and even yacht racing events. Do note that not all are annual in nature, so check out our list of festivals and events in Langkawi to see if there’s one (or two) that coincides with your tropical holiday.
