The Desert Comes to Life with Jaisalmer Desert
Festival
Rajasthan captures the very essence of India
teeming with history, heritage, culture and
grandeur. The Thar Desert adds to the charisma.
The Jaisalmer Desert Festival is a celebration of
the desert. The annual event is a showcase of
the colourful cultural heritage that has passed
on through the generations of this state. The
folk music, dance, attire, traditions,
festivities and everything else are something to
be cherished for a lifetime. Adding glamour to
the Rajasthan tour packages, the festival is one
of the best reasons to explore the desert in
winters.

The Desert Festival is held amidst the beautiful
dunes of the Thar Desert in the Sam Sand Dunes,
42 kilometers from Jaisalmer. The 3-day
celebrations happen in Hindu month of Magh three
days prior to the full moon. In 2020, the dates
are from the 7th to 9th February. Romantic,
remote and unspoiled, the desert comes to life
with the Jaisalmer Desert Festival.

The roots of the festival are mostly unknown. The
Tourism Department organizes the vibrant festival
as an international event to lure visitors to
the Desert City. The celebrations of this
festival make the desert come alive with colors
and excitements.

The Jaisalmer Desert Festival commences with a
procession from the Jaisalmer Fort to the Shahid
Poonam Singh Stadium on the first day in the
morning of the festival. The grand parade
displays Rajasthani arts, folk dance and music
by local performers many of which are local
tribes dressed in traditional and bright
costumes. The parade has an amazing display of
jugglery performances along with the famous
dance forms like Gair and the folk fire dances.
The star performers are the Kalabaz or the
Nats, nomadic community, natives to Jaisalmer
known for their gymnastic acts. Poignant folk
music and recitals are the creations of Bhopas
Langhas and Manganiars.
