Festivals in Ramnagar are quite a contrast to the ones in other parts of the country. The simple people here have a non flashy way of celebrating festivals. But there is no compromise when it comes to dancing and singing. The traditional beats can get anyone to shake a leg! Here’s a list of festivals that will give you a nice peek into the life and traditions of Ramnagar:

  • Vasantotsav Festival

A farewell party for the winter season and a welcome bash for Spring, Vasantotsav brings new life to this little hill town. Celebrated in the month of February, this festival sees artists from across the place who come together and showcase their talent and skills. If you are travelling to Ramnagar during this time you are in a for a real shopping treat. Not only will you get to pick up some of the most unique handicrafts but also taste a variety of lip smacking dishes. Isn’t the thought of a festival in the mountains simply luring? You’ll get to party, shop and be a part of the scrumptious feast.

  • Kumaon Festival

Celebrated across the Kumaon Range, this festival is the closest you’ll to get to the locals of Ramnagar. It is the time when the region gets immersed in the milieu of festivity, including the popular places to visit in Ramnagar. Match your steps with the people here, get dizzy on the rides, indulge in the local recipes and learn to hum a few folk tunes! And for a change, buy yourself a present from the array of handicrafts and bric a brac on display here. Kumaon Festival is celebrated in November and it is just one of the many reasons for you to travel to Ramnagar.

Apart from these festivals, Ramnagar also celebrates other festivals like Diwali, Holi etc. with much fervour and enthusiasm like the rest of India. The good part is that you don’t need pointed heels and fancy dresses to be a part of the festive fun in the hills. It’s definitely fun of a different kind!
