Surajkund Crafts Mela is a handloom and handicrafts fair organized annually by the Haryana Tourism. Held at Surajkund, near Delhi, it takes place in the month of February and goes on for two weeks. Delhi SurajKund Crafts Mela was organized for the first time in the year 1981. Skilled artists, painters, weavers, sculptors and craftsmen from all over India come to take part in this fair, which showcases folk arts and crafts. Even, the ambience created for the Suraj Kund Handicrafts Fair of Delhi, India is that of a typical rural Indian marketplace. There is also an open-air theatre, where ‘Natyashala’ folk dances and musical evenings are held.
One of the unique features of the fair is that its decor is based on the theme of a particular state and the state chosen changes every year. The entrance, the grounds, the furniture, the colors, the architecture and everything else will remind you of the state chosen. There will even be a special stall dedicated to the local cuisines of that state. There are approximately 400 hundred stalls at the venue and there is always a particular craft that gets more highlighted in any given year. Another major attraction of the Surajkund Crafts Mela is that here you will get the handicrafts at a discounted price.
