Puri Beach Festival

Puri Beach Festival is celebrated annually in early November, in Puri. Orissan craft, cuisine and cultural evenings are the highlights of the event.

Taking a cue from the popular Goa festival, the current Puri Beach festival has included fashion shows and rock shows to attract tourists. The festival held on the beautiful beach at Puri, offers a unique opportunity to visitors to interact with the local populace and enjoy the many splendoured charms of Orissa. But the recurrences of natural and man-made disasters are creating havoc for the tourism sector, which is viewed as a potential source of income for the state. Efforts are on to attract international community and to make the festival an international event. The festival, which began on November 23, is all set to bedazzle the tourists and art lovers with its charismatic mix of classical and folk dance from all corners of India. Apart from the performance of various dance forms, the five-day festival will also bring together sand art, handicraft and a number of cultural programmes.

For tourists the festival serves as a source of enjoyment and makes them aware of various art forms, but for the artists it was something more than that. For them it is an opportunity to show their talent and to interact with other artists.
