The new capital city of Gujarat is one of many colours, fairs and events. Every year stands witness to several events in Gandhinagar that range from cultural and religious to business associations. The most popular events are held during festivals like Sankranti and Navratri. Uttarayan is a kite-flying festival celebrated to welcome summer and the harvest of crops. Navratri is celebrated with much grandeur where locals and tourists indulge in folk dances, music and authentic Gujarati cuisine. Krishna Janmashtami is another festival where thousands of devotees gather at Panchdev Mandir to celebrate the birth of Lord Krishna. Besides these cultural events, there are several business events in Gandhinagar that attract thousands of people from across the globe. The Vibrant Gujarat Global Trade Show, Gujarat Travel Mart and Hyper Expo are just few of the many events held on a large scale annually.
