Keraton: Indonesian Festival 2017
Keraton is ISAUW’s largest and most iconic event that is annually held every spring since 2002 at the University of Washington. Every year, we commit to leave indelible impressions to a crowd of over 8,000 international audiences, through in-depth and hands on experience of the Indonesian culture.
Last year, our activities includes a range of traditional dance performances, traditional games and traditional food prepared by local and international vendors coming from different regions of Indonesia. We had a concept that is youthful, yet traditional. Keraton has grown much since its start in 2002, from a small crowd of 70 attendees, it has developed to a staggering audience of over 8,000 visitors in its latest display, consisting of people from many various backgrounds. This event is currently the largest of its kind in Seattle, and the second largest in the United States
On April 29, 2017, take a break from your busy life and enjoy a ‘One day Pass to Indonesia’ with our signature annual event: KERATON 2017. Immerse yourself in a journey to exotic Indonesia without ever leaving Seattle through interactive games, aromatic food, and enticing performances. Experience the wonders of the five largest islands in Indonesia: Papua, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Java and Kalimantan. We will also have a coffee tasting booth where we will introduce the various alluring flavors of coffee that Indonesia has to offer, and a beautiful batik display showcasing the unique making process of applying wax-resistant dye to cloth. These are just a few of the many more activities and exhibitions we have in line for you!
