4 Days Of Fun Guaranteed For Your Kids At The Mylapore Festival

Click here to see the full itinerary of the Mylapore Festival and what’s in store for your kids this year!

Every Mylaporean's favourite festival is back! The timing of the event couldn't be more perfect- ringing at the end of the Margazhi season, the event looks to celebrate the spirit of the oldest and most popular localities of the city. 

The Mylapore Festival is now a regular event every year, for more than a decade now. Starting with an innovative Kolam contest 10 years back, that aroused the interest of the supremely talented Mylaporeans, the festival has come a long way to etch itself as a prominent event in the city's calendar. What's special this year? The festival spanning over 4 days in over 12 venues has around 30 events planned and more than 100 artists performing! 

Here's what's planned for the kids!
