Jauljibi and Thal Fairs

Time February and April
Venue Jauljibi, Uttarakhand
Significance Marks the onset of Spring season
Highlights People clad in yellow dresses, join in the merry making. Goddess Saraswati is worshipped on this day.

The Jauljibi fair is held each year during the month of February while the Thal fair is celebrated in the month of April. This place also holds significance because it is at this place where the Rivers Kali and Gori converge. It is also the meeting place of various cultures, like Shauka, Nepali and Kumaoni. Jauljibi also acts as the getaway to places like Johar, Darma, Chaudans and Byans.

This fair is not only important from a cultural or commercial point of view, it also holds importance because each year, many visitors come from as far as Nepal, to sell horses, ghee and take back food grains and jaggery in return.

A very similar kind of fair is also organized in Thal during the festival of Makar Sankranti, or on the occasion of Vaishakh Sankranti, on 14th of April, each year. It is particularly famous with the Shaukas.
