The STARLIGHT CARNIVAL, which will take place every Thurs, Friday and Saturday until 2nd November, is precisely that, a carnival, under the tropical skies, hopefully unclouded, in the cool misty surrounds of the highlands, by the Century Lake Park, featuring food, movies, (in a cool open air theatre), games and music.
“The Starlight Carnival is our way to creating an idyllic setting for an unforgettable evening,” says Dato’ Edward Holloway, Executive Vice President of Leisure & Hospitality. “We are in the tropics, so Malaysia’s hot weather is not always conducive for open-air events. But here in Resorts World Genting, the weather is cool all year round, and this makes us the perfect place to hold a European-style al fresco carnival."
Food trucks line the pavement, with a pleasing array of food choices, but really, there are so many F&B outlets in Genting collectively, it would take a year to try out everyone of them.
As part of the launch, we were entertained with a circus performance of acrobatics,
and a flash mob which comprised Genting staff themselves.

For the duration of the Starlight Carnival, the outdoor screenings are as follows:
OKTOBERFEST.... the annual German beer festival, originating from Munich. Co sponsored by Carlsberg, this glitzy marquee has been set up just for that purpose. And without a doubt, perhaps not as family friendly, it is the most pulsating area for the night for those wishing to partay.
Featuring up to 19 types of premium beers – from Carlsberg Special Brew to Brooklyn OPA, from Franzikaner Hefe to Connor’s Stout Porter – the beers are served in chilled glasses and mugs.
A variety of beer accompaniment type food such as truffle sausages, kimchi hot dogs, cheese beef burgers and spicy lamb burgers from Banger Hanger & Burgers, chicken wings at Extreme Wings and cheesy nachos at Loaded Nachos.
