Ubud Food Festival (UFF-2020) Postponed until June 26-28, 2020
Published on May 9, 2020
The Mudra Swari Sarswati Foundation has announced that due to growing concerns over the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Ubud Food Festival 2020 (UFF-2020), presented by ABC Foods, has been postponed until Friday-Sunday, June 26-28, 2020.
The original dates scheduled for the Festival were Friday-Sunday, April 17-19, 2020.
In postponing the UFF 2020, the organizers said: “The safety and health of Festival-goers, speakers, vendors, staff, volunteers, and people of Ubud is our top priority. As an important part of the Ubud community and Indonesia’s overall culinary scene, UFF has a responsibility to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the community stays healthy and safe. With a large Festival gathering, the Foundation does not have the capacity to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved.”
With many countries going into a temporary “close down” mode and some travelers being advised not to travel to Bali or other destinations, concerns were expressed regarding the viability of holding the UFF 2020 on its original April dates.
With new dates for the Ubud Food Festival of June 26-28, 2020, the organizers are optimistic that current efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will prove successful, and the popular Culinary Event can be heald “in a comfortable and healthy” way.
“We are overwhelmed by the support from participating chefs and speakers over our decision, and we are grateful for the kind offers to assist with this change,” said UFF Founder and Director Janet DeNeefe. “We would never do anything that could potentially cause harm to our community. We’ll continue to follow the news surrounding this topic to ensure we present a safe and fun Festival.”
Those who have purchased tickets for UFF 2020 on the original dates are eligible for a full refund or can have their payment applied to the new dates in June.
