Tuaran to host annual Kaamatan festival

KOTA KINABALU, 10 February 2023: Tuaran will host this year’s launch of the month-long Harvest Festival celebration.

Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Jeffrey G. Kitingan cum Main Organising Chairman said
it has been the tradition of the state level celebration that the launch is held in a district in the state.

It is not immediately known if Tuaran has ever been selected as host.

The month-long celebration, that takes place in May every year, is traditionally celebrated by indigenous communities in Sabah particularly the Kadazandusun.

However, the celebration is also celebrated by all communities irrespective of their religious beliefs and races.

This year’s theme is ‘Kaamatan Membudayakan Perpaduan’ (Kaamatan Inculturates Unity), which was unanimously agreed to by committee members.

The month-long celebration reaches its climax on May 30 & 31 at the Hongkod Koisaan, KDCA, Penampang.
