Azamgarh Festival in Lucknow from March 13th to March 20th, 2015
Azamgarh exudes a rich cultural flavour- its unique poetic and music traditions, its exquisite weaving (Benarasi Saris - village Mubarakpur) and its exclusive black pottery (with silver work - village Nizamabad) traditions are a real marvel. With a view to showcasing the cultural side of rural Azamgarh, ITRHD organised the first Azamgarh Festival in Delhi in April, 2013 in Delhi. This festival received tremendous response from Delhi and NCR. Encouraged by the response, ITRHD is organising this 7 days long Second Azamgarh Festival in partnership with UP Tourism comprising music performances and a Mushaira highlighting its poetic heritage. A Crafts Mela showcasing the weaving and pottery tradition should also be a big attraction. Such exposures to the Art and Craft of Azamgarh will help the region to remove wrong impressions about it from the minds of people.
