Fairs and Festivals of Rajasthan


Ever so often, the stark barren landscape of Rajasthan comes alive with a riot of colours and joyous celebrations.

It's as if people, in this sparsely-populated state, look for an excuse to come together with festive abandon and momentarily forget their tough lives.

Seasons are heralded with a festive fervour and cattle marts turn into delightful fairs. While some traditional fairs and festivals have a mythological origin, others commemorate a local hero or saint.

While traditional and religious festivals, such as Holi (the festival of colours),Diwali (the festival of lights), Makar Sakranti, Urs etc. are celebrated enthusiastically, festivals involving camel and elephant sports, folk music and dance are also being specially organized for tourists.

These melas give a splendid insight into the life of the Rajasthanis and the romance of Rajasthan. And it's a wonderful idea to take a look at the Festival Calendar below, while planning your visit to the state.
