Kuta Karnival is one of Bali’s most vibrant and energetic events. Also known as ‘A Celebration of Life’, the Kuta Karnival was first held in 2003 and has grown every year since.
The idea of this event was birthed following the devastating Bali bombing of 2002. The locals were deeply affected by this act of terrorism and afterwards created this event to celebrate and enjoy life.
