Bharat Parv is celebration of India’s rich culture and tradition in food, crafts and folk arts. Organised by the ministry of Tourism, Government of India, the recent Bharat Parv was organised at the Red Fort from 26th to 31st January.
The high point of Bharat Parv was the state and department tabloids that are kept in sprawling open lawns of Red Fort after they were displayed in Republic Day parade. Bharat Parv provides an oppotunity for visitors to have a look at these tabloids closely. Apart from this, these tabloids were served as beautiful Selfie Zones for visitors as well.
A huge stage was setup for live performances. Singers, dancers and musicians from various states, in their traditional attire, performed for the audience. A huge screen as the backdrop of the stage displayed the name of the dance item along with the state.
A separate area was reserved for the food court. Food stalls from various states were setup here and the visitors enjoyed the finger licking street food from various parts of the country. Many a hotel management institutes and NGOs also managed to pull foodies towards them. To enjoy live performances with food, they had nukkad natak and group singing on a make shift stage in the food court area.
One side of the huge lawns was reserved for the handicraft stalls. These stalls were selling hand made jewelery, home decor, clothes and stationary.
The entry to Bharat Parv was free but unlike other years, carrying an ID card was mandatory for visitors this year.
