The 51st Bengaluru Ganesha Utsava (BGU) is an experience you would not want to miss. Sheer fervour and euphoria is certain to grip the city as it commemorates ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ with a magnificent confluence of music, dance, drama and art—showcasing talent from some of the finest artists across the country.





Spread over 11 days, the Utsava is a must-visit mega festival for those who need no excuse to celebrate. Imagine Bengaluru’s busiest street splashed with colours of a hundred Rangoli designs. Or a 30 ft high sand art Ganesha ,along with idols of Lord Shiva and Parvathi, made by the artisans of Puri, Odisha. Attempting a one of its kind record, the Utsava will showcase a mammoth ladoo weighing 6,000 kg. It will be offered as prasad to the visitors. 50,000 diyas will light up the venue and 500 dancers will perform five Indian classical dance forms— stretching over a distance of one kilometre. Just fathom the aerial view if you can! Aromas of Karnataka, showcasing traditional food from six districts of the state, too will surely tickle your taste buds with a wide array of 100 unique dishes.

The festival starts at September 9 this year!
