Ahmedabad Festival

The most important festival in Ahmedabad is Makar Sankranti which is held from 13-15January every year. This is when the city is at its colourful best when thousands and thousands of kites of every shape, size, and colour soar into the sky as it celebrates the International Kite Festival. In the night, the sky lightens up with the twinkling of a myriad tiny paper lamps sent up on special kites.

Navratri is another event in Ahmedabad that is celebrated with great fervour in Ahmedabad as is in the whole of Gujarat. Young people take part in the dandiya raas and garba dances and this is a time when all let their hair down and preparation for this event takes place with practice sessions happening weeks ahead of the Navratri week.
