Festivals

 

The important fairs of the district are Beneshwar Fair, Urs at Galiakot and Neelapani. On the occasion the fairs Bhils dance and sing in gaiety and with great gesto. The musical in struments of the Bhil include flute, dhol, thali, majira, dholak, mridang, tabla, harmonium and sarangi. On festival days the Bhils perform a fascinating ring dance locally known as Channa or Gher.
