India Festival Guide

India is a multifaceted nation hued in vibrant colors of various festivals and fairs. Perhaps, no other country celebrates as many festivals as India does. These festivals, holding different significances, taking place in different seasons, known by different names, and colored in many hues, bind the diversity of India in one soul.

Indian fairs and festivals are finely blended, traditionally grounded, palpably felt, visually mottled, ethnically varied, and grandly celebrated. From January to December, every month of the year is filled with festive air in India. Want to breathe in this air? Well, our India festival guide will help you to get loads of it.

Let’s categorize the India festival guide into two parts.

● Culture & religious festivals of India
● Fairs of India


Needless to mention, all major festivals in India fall into this category. From Holi to Diwali, whichever festival you can remember comes under this category. Here, dig into the details. Wait, before moving on, don’t forget to check out our festival tour packages in India.


Let’s start our India festival guide by lighting up a ‘Diya’. To start with, Diwali is the most popular festival in India. It is predominantly celebrated by Hindus across the world to commemorate the coronation of Lord Shree Ram. On the festival of Diwali, people light up unnumbered clay-made lamps, decorate their homes,s and wear ethnic wear. You can see women in Sari incorporated with extensive jewelry. Furthermore, they spend time with family, prepare sweets & feast, and burst crackers.

On this day, not a single corner of the house is devoid of lights. This is why people also call it a festival of lights. Girls draw the floral design with colored sand at the entrance area. Yes, we call it Rangoli. The celebration proceeds with the customary worship of ‘Lakshmi and Ganesha’ at night.

Wondering why we left crackers? Well, because they cause air pollution. Jokes apart, the festivity of Diwali would surely be incomplete without the ear-splitting sounds of crackers. Your earplugs can save you if you’re not fond of fireworks.

When: On Purnima (full moon night) of Kartik month of Hindu calendar. Generally, it falls in October or November in the Gregorian calendar.

Where: All over India, and those parts of the world where Hindus reside.

Why: To commemorate the return and coronation of Lord Rama after a long exile of 14 years.

What to expect: Deafening noise of crackers, decorated houses, bustling markets, and people full of life.

What to pack: Ethnic wear and maybe some crackers.


Also known as Vijayadashmi, Dussehra rings its bell just 20 days prior to Diwali. It is another festival associated with Lord Rama and his exile. According to Indian mythology, this is the day when Lord Rama killed the demon Ravana. Thus, Dussehra also symbolizes the triumph of good over evil. Killing a Ravana inside you would be the best thing you can do on Dussehra.

On Dussehra, people make a huge effigy of Ravana and shoot it with arrows. At the end of the event, this giant effigy is burnt. People also call it ‘Ravan Dahan’. In rural areas, you can see a group of people performing ‘Ramleela’. Believe us Ramleela is even more entertaining than comic films. Keep your camera all set because Ramleela’s performance won’t let you put it down. For a short note, Dussehra is also the day when the Navratri festival culminates.

Air filled with ecstasy and dust soaked in colors sums up the indescribable celebration of Holi. On Holi, every corner of the country is draped with the vibrant colors of exhilaration. This is the only festival in India that is celebrated solely to have fun. On this day, people forget all their worries and throw themselves in the pool of colors, happiness, and joy.

People break all the boundaries, forget all frictions, and put ‘Aabeer’ on each other’s foreheads. If somebody plays a prank with you on Holi, don’t take it seriously because it is a part of the celebration. Pranks are always good-natured.
