Fairs & Festivals

The Rajasthan's love for color and joyous celebrations is proved by the elaborate rituals and the gay abandon with which he surrenders himself to the numerous fairs and festivals of the region.
In addition to the festivals celebrated by the Hindus, Muslims and others, there are also the traditional fairs.

Fair and festivals of Rajasthan reflect the vigor and life style of its people. Vibrant colors, music and festivities make the golden sands come alive. Veiled, bejeweled women sing and dance to devotional rhythms. Itinerant bardsrender ballads of velour of the heroes of yore.

Alongside, brisk trading of consumer goods, cattle and grain is carried on. Nomadic tribes and tradition alentertainers - minstrels, jugglers, puppeteers and performers come together at these fairs seeking livelihood.

There are animal fairs, there are religious fairs and there are fairs to mark the changing seasons.

In fact, celebrations occur almost round the year under splendid opportunity for the visitor to gain an insight into the life of the Rajasthani. Other than the traditional fairs, recently established festivals which involve elephants, camel races, dance and music have been specially organized for the tourists.
