The Denpasar festival also shows Denpasar`s strong and deep-rooted historic, artistic, and Bali Culture. It was first held in the year of 2007 by the Bali Tourism Department. 

During the day ceremony of the Denpasar Festival, a number of cultural shows are performed at the junctions of the Catur Muka Statue or at the corner of Puputan Square. 

Denpasar Festival is usually visited by more than a thousand visitors during the festive season. Some people just walk around the site and some parents with kids just take their children to the play areas set up around the Festival area. 

Every year has a new theme for the festival and it is always rooted in the traditions and culture of Bali. In 2023 the theme for the Denpasar Festival was “Jayastambha”, which meant ‘Pillar of Glory,’  presenting a more stunning experience with presentation in the form of art exhibitions, musical performances, cultural performances, and a series of other exciting events for visitors.
