Himachal Pradesh is not only a place of
enchanting landscapes and mystifying woods but also colorful
festivals. Through the fairs and festivals in Himachal
Pradesh, the state upholds and displays to the world its
rich tradition, friendly people and amazing splendors. Every
month brings about a new celebration time with a wide set of
Himachal Pradesh festivals.
Some of these have come down hand in hand with age-old tradition while some others have developed in recent times.
Generally the fairs are held at such a time when the people are free from their household engagements.
In remote places when winter brings life to a standstill, the fairs, festivals and events brings the fun and frolic. Thus, these festivals and events are inseparable parts of Himachal Pradesh society.
Fairs give them an opportunity to purchase and sell needed articles. Traders from far and near join these festivals to display articles like clothes, wool, pashmina, furs, leather, hides and skins, pottery, metal ware, jewellery, ornaments, fruits, vegetables and many other local products.
They bring forth the religion, rituals,
belief and are abound in folk songs, dance forms and other
lucid expressions of the people of Himachal Pradesh.
Himachal is a land of Devi and Devtas - land of gods and most of the fairs are of mythological nature. But to keep on rhythm in various walks of life, fairs have occupied predominant role and acquired varied dimensions, such as trade, agricultural, seasonal and fairs connected with festivals etc. There is hardly any village where no fair is held. There is almost continuous succession of fairs.
