Posted on: September 04, 2019 | Back | Print

34th edition of the Surajkund International Crafts Mela will be held in Faridabad,Surajkund from 1-16th February 2020.

A large number of renowned national and international folk artistes and cultural groups present day performances at both the Chaupals, the open-air theatres, located in the Mela premises. Also enthralling cultural evening programmes are held at the main Chaupal during each of the Mela evening. The Mela is indeed a custodian of the heritage crafts involving use of traditional skills that are fading away due to cheap machine made imitations, and a special section is earmarked for showcasing of these heritage crafts.

The multi-cuisine Food Court provides ethnic cuisines from all over the world, which are immensely popular with visitors. There are designated places for amusement, adventure sports and joy rides to make it a must visit event for the young.

The Mela celebrates the unique diversity of  Indian traditions and culture in a ambience, created to represent the  ethos of rural India. Surajkund International Crafts Mela showcases some  of the most exquisite handlooms and handicrafts of India. Handmade  fabrics soaked in ethnic colours make an eye catching display for the  visitors.
