BouFest is a fundraising event for the Bou Resources Development Cooperative Society Ltd and was first held in September 2019, where it proved to be a success. It is an agrotourism event amalgamating first and foremost the cooperative society based in Bou Village and surrounding villages, 20 minutes' drive east from Alotau Town along the newly-sealed East Cape Highway.

The event features displays, demonstrations, cultural dances, and various performances from the 500+ members of the cooperative society in the surrounding area. It is purely a community-driven festival promoting resilience in agriculture and tourism.

The next event will be held in August 2021.
