“Jember Fashion Carnaval or JFC (Indonesian Karnaval Busana Jember) is an annual carnival held in the East Java city of Jember… Jember Fashion Carnival has no relation with the Christian pre-Lenten festival, but (is) more of a festivities in general, roughly following the Brazilian style, with procession of dancers in extravagant costumes, with emphasis on the traditional Indonesian motif.

Generally, the carnival used world-themed fashion or nature-inspired theme. Preparation was held extensively months before and participants volunteered for the event.[1]

The idea for Jember Fashion Carnaval was realized by local fashion designer and educator Dynand Fariz. Initially, a world-themed fashion week known as Pekan Mode Dynand Fariz was held in 2001. In 2002, the fashion week was held around the city of Jember. This has inspired the creation of Jember Fashion Carnaval. The first Jember Fashion Carnaval was held on January 1, 2003, the same date as the founding day of Jember City. It was followed by another Jember Fashion Carnaval in August 2003. Since then the carnival is held on the month of August.[1][2]

All of us here at Homemaide, highly recommend attending this beautiful festival. Just checking Kayak.com, we see round trip tickets from Washington, DC at about $1,200. Not bad for that type of experience and trip:


If you’re not able to fly to the Jember Festival, you can join us in celebrating the coming season of Fall and the harvest it brings, with music from the 60's, 70’s, and today:

As the Tempos musical group in 1959, then in 1966 the Happenings once sang: I’ll see you in September, and which Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons later also echoed.

Also in 1966 — April, come she did:

Simon and Garfunkel’s — April, Come She Will:

April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June, she’ll change her tune,
In restless walks she’ll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold;
September I’ll remember
A love once new has now grown old.

  • This was a LONG time before Disturbed covered Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence.

After that, in 1968, the Doors once said and sang: “Summer’s almost gone.

They were followed in 1979 by the irreplaceable: Earth, Wind and Fire — September. (This song along has over 335 Million views!)

And as Green Day requested, in 2004, we won’t forget to wake you up when September ends.
