To mark the 263rd anniversary of Yogyakarta, Wayang Jogja Night Carnival #4 (WJNC) will be held on Monday, 7 October 2019 at 6.30 PM. This year, WJNC is held under the theme of ‘Ringgit Wanara Kagungan Dalem Karaton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat’ by showing performers from 14 districts that will enliven Yogyakarta’s anniversary. The concept of WJNC is street art which means that this performance is especially held along the street. This event takes place along the Sudirman Street, Tugu Jogja and Margo Utomo Street.
Tugu Pal Putih or the Tugu Monument is the center in the event of the Wayang Jogja Night Carnival #4. Besides that, there are two other display points. They are in front of the ex-Indosat building at Sudirman St. and in front of KR building at the Margo Utomo St. Later, the artists will show some performances that have been prepared in correspondence with certain chosen puppet characters.
As an annual event that is always awaited by the public, the Government of Yogyakarta keep bringing innovations both in the concept and the content of the event. Therefore, this event is expected not only to be just a show but also an education resource.
