Pushkar Fair Calendar - 18 Nov. - 25 Nov. 2015

Pushkar Fair is the yearly five-day camel and livestock fair, celebrated in the town of Pushkar in the state of Rajasthan, India. It is one of the world's largest camel fair apart from buying and selling of livestock, and its highlights have become competitions such as the "matka phod", "longest moustache", and "bridal competitions" are the main draws for this fair which attracts thousands of tourists. People throughout the country are allowed to visit the fair to sell their live stocks as well. Handicrafts have much demand in the mela as worldwide tourists visit the destination to buy attractive arts and crafts. An estimated number of around 50,000 camels are brought in the Pushkar camel festival. In recent years the fair has also included an exhibition cricket match between the local Pushkar club and a team of random foreign tourists. People enjoy the dances, music, camel races and many other exciting competitions.

The Pushkar Festival in Rajasthan comes to an end on the day of Kartik Purnima. On this day, ritual bathing on the ghats of Pushkar Lake begins at dawn. There is quite a rush for getting a place on the bathing ghats. The water of the Lake is believed to possess medicinal powers and also wash away the sins of a lifetime. After holy dip, the devotees visit the Brahma temple to get his blessings.
The first five days of the festival in Rajasthan are for selling and purchase of the cattle. The prospective buyer is attracted by the owner by admiring his animal with long list of qualities. The buying and selling may take some time because of long-drawn negotiations and bargains. Once the deal is over, the animals are groomed and ornamented at the festival particularly the camel. After shearing and scrubbing, the camel is costumed and sometimes even perfumed handmade saddles, long strings of cowries, beads, colorful saddle-straps, embroidered back-covers and boots are available for the camels.

Pushkar Fair is also the time when women folk go on a shopping binge. The stalls of trinkets, silver ornaments, chains, nose rings, necklaces, waistbands, anklets, toe rings, hairpins and the ivory bangles worn from wrist to shoulder are attract the women in the pushkar festival. Garments of patchwork and tie-n-dye are also on sale. Tattoo stalls are also crowded with women getting a permanent beauty spot on their body.
Pushkar Festival in Rajasthan attracts a large number of tourist from India and abroad. The entire village is arranged in blocks of tents named after the famous dances of Rajasthan and each having its own identity.
