What Makes The Surajkund Mela Every Mom’s Favourite Outing

Here’s where we are heading to this week!

February is here and in Delhi that means one of the most celebrated festivals is in town. The Surajkund Mela always opens every year in the 1st week of February for a fortnight and we're super excited. The kids and I are definitely heading out to check out the fun & excitement the mela brings to the city every year. 

What Is The Surajkund Mela?

The festival is in its 34th edition and is hosted by the Haryana Tourism Department. This unique International craft festival is a platform for artists across the globe to showcase their culture and talent. This year the state of Himachal Pradesh has been chosen to be the Theme State. At least 20 countries and all the states of India are participating in the Mela. The core reason behind holding this festival every year is to promote the talent and culture of local artisans in our country. World over machines are replacing humans faster than before, so this is an attempt by the Haryana government to boost the export of local handlooms.

What Can You Look Forward To?

  • There are a large number of renowned national and international folk artistes and cultural groups who perform at the Chaupals, the open-air theatres located on the grounds.
