The 10th Annual Chandigarh National Crafts Mela which is being jointly organized by the Department of Cultural Affairs, Chandigarh Administration and North Zone Cultural Centre (NZCC), was inaugurated today at Kalagram.

National Crafts Mela which is being organised from 9th to 18th Nov, 2018 on the theme of 'South Central Zone' is a unique event that showcases the diversity of handicrafts, handlooms and fabrics of our country. To add musical and rhythmic element to the event, it also brings together large number of renowned national folk artists and cultural groups.

On the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi Ji, Chandigarh Administration is giving a special tribute to the Iconic leader with the main attraction of the event being the stall dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi to mark the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation. The stall will showcase some of the rare pictures of Mahatma Gandhi's life, freedom struggle, and other aspects of his remarkable journey. Around 170 stalls have been constructed at the site to display spectacular work of artisans and craftsmen of Chandigarh and other states.

Cultural evenings have always been the most entertaining and attractive part of the event. The fair has grown in stature and has got on board some acclaimed artists and bands for the cultural performances. UNI KS RHK
