The Jakarta Post reports that the village of Kedisan at Kintamani and Lake Batur in the regency of Bangli will host The Batur Festival September 20 – 22, 2013.

Jointly sponsored by the local community, the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy and the Bangli Regency - the Batur Festival seeks to promote the area’s UNESCO Geopark status.
Made Gianyar, the regent of Bangli, said: “The coming festival has several objectives — to introduce the concept of the Geopark to local people and visitors alike, and to attract global visitors, scholars in particular, to explore Batur’s Geopark potential.” 
The festival is being held at a time when the local administration has undertaken the improvement of a number of public and tourist facilities, including the establishment of an education and information center.

Gianyar said: "It will take quite a long time to pass on information and knowledge about Batur as a Geopark to local residents. It is a step-by-step program starting from local government staff, to communities and school systems.” 
To be held over a weekend to maximize attendance, the Batur Festival will also provide a free shuttle services to and from South Bali at Central Kuta Parkir and Jalan Legian Raya, and central Ubud to the Batur Volcano Museum.
A full program of art and cultural performances, comedic shows, participatory jogged dance events and traditional Calonarang drama will all form part of the three-day weekend of festivities.
Simultaneous with the festival, a series of workshops featuring noted scholars will also be conducted to discuss the future of the Batur Geopark.
Since its designation as a Geopark, the number of visitors to Batur has increased from 300,000 people in 2011 to 500,000 in 2012.

The area is targeting 750,000 visitors for all of 2013.
