A decision has been taken by UT administration to organize the first Chandigarh National Crafts Fair. This fair, will be held during October 24 to November 2, in collaboration with the North Zone Culture Centre (NZCC).

Citing this fair as a 10-days shopping festival, Home Secretary Ram Niwas informed that it would be held as per the famous Surajkund Mela pattern, where the cultural programs would also be organized to attract more regional visitors.

The finest handloom-and-handicraft traditions of the country comprising traditional cuisines and the innumerable folk forms from various states would be showcased in this mega event, added Mr. Niwas.

About 131 national and state-winning crafts persons from different states of the country would exhibit their price-winning produces in the fair that would be held at Kalagram. For this, the lay-out plans have already been prepared by administration's architectural department.

Kashmir would be the theme state of the event, where Kashmiri food and various dance forms would be the spotlight apart from the traditional works of different states. Particularly, the north- Eastern states would be having large representation at this shopping festival.

Various cultural programs at the event would also encompass a fashion show on folk and traditional themes and a special presentation of Bharatnatyam from a France dancer.

Projecting this event as a major shopping-cum-tourism experience on the pattern of Dubai and Singapore Shopping Festival is the major aim of the administration.
