Five Mountains Festival is an annual event organised independently by farmer-artists of Five Mountains Community in Magelang district, which covers the area of Mount Merapi, Merbabu, Sumbing, Andong, and Menoreh.
The initiator and organiser of this festival, Five Mountains Community, is a collection of residents of several hamlets that live in the area around the five mountains. Most of them work as farmers who create art in their own group in each hamlet.
The festival represents a tradition of community festivities. It exists and is held for its community: art enthusiasts that are spread across the five mountains. Every outsider who comes is a guest, not a potential customer. Everyone is treated equally, including Former Vice President of Indonesia, Mr Boediono, who was asked to sit on the floor along with other visitors during Five Mountains Festival a few years ago.
Various art attractions, cultural carnival, art exhibitions, and speech about culture are featured in this event.
