India is a land of fairs and celebrations. But this one, at Faridabad (just about 25 km away from New Delhi Airport, India), is indeed outstanding for many reasons. So between 1st and 16th February, indulge yourself in the “Surajkund International Crafts Fair”- a carnival of ethnicities, cultures, cuisines, and artisans from all the States of India and more than twenty other participating Nations.
For the year 2020, the theme State of India for the fair is Himachal Pradesh while Uzbekistan is the chosen as the partner Nation. Please find comprehensive details in the brochure, and all the relevant information about entry tickets, the fair map, etc. here- Haryana Tourism.
As a visitor, you will be flabbergasted to find the finest handicrafts, handloom items, earthenware, leather/ bamboo/ sandalwood goods and much more. And you will possibly want to possess much of all that you see at the fair. You might get back with your hands full of shopping bags but your thirst for shopping will not be quenched enough!!
The evenings are a jubilant carnival of Indian cultures with the folk dance and singing performances. Take a glimpse at what the 34th celebration has in store for visitors here-
All the facilities for visitors’ convenience like car parking, washrooms, drinking water, and food courts are sufficiently well planned. The weather around this time is favorable, but I suggest to carry your sunglasses and cap, as well as, wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Do carry big and comfortable carry bags to keep your belongings. This should help enhance your energy to walk, dance, eat and shop.
Above all, carry an attitude to enjoy every bit, capture special moments in your camera with the artists at all the selfie points. And please do have a look here-
My love for fun, frolic, and food always inspires me to visit places. And the Surajkund International Crafts Fair is on top priority for all of the above reasons. It’s a pleasure to see people belonging to all age-groups enjoying here with equal zeal.
The fair is best experienced with a group of friends. And for girls, it is a majestic shopping spree. You will find some very good bargains in all your favorite textiles and jewelry. You will find everything beyond your imagination for a complete makeover of your home décor too!
