Surajkund Mela 2019: The Largest Crafts Fair In The World

Last week my family and I visited the annual Suraj Kund Mela, Faridabad as an outing for my birthday celebration. Barely 50 min drive from South Delhi, we took lunch with us and feasted inside the colorful craft fest.

Every year Surjakund Mela has a state theme, and this year it is "Maharashtra", depicting the state culture in craft and food. The decorative installations and display were very elegant and energetic, creating a lively atmosphere. Surajkund fair has a unique beauty that it is up and down earthy landscape with trees all over the fair area.

We started strolling along the beautiful craft shops. Some of the National Award winners artisans have displayed their craft work in the fair and they were pulling most of the visitors to their stalls. From Terracotta articles, Mahbubani paintings, wood lacquer crafts, textiles, mojri to homemade pickles… oh, my mouth is watering. They also have a huge variety of food stalls where you can taste popular state cuisines. 

I am a regular visitor of Dilli Haat INA, that keeps me updated with the various craft items that are one of the best crafts one can find in New Delhi.  Other than Dilli Haat, I generally get bored while visiting craft melas, as they do not meet my expectations. Surprisingly Surajkund Mela exceeded my expectation and I enjoyed knowing handicrafts I never seen before. Like Cast metal work, Grass straw paintings to name a few.

Crafts artisans from other countries like Thailand, Afghanistan, Ghana, Turkey, and Egypt have also joined in showcasing their craft and cultural performances. A mixture of all of these and lots of craft shopping had made my day and left me with the craving to come back to experience this once again.

This is the last week for  33rd Surajkund International Craft Mela, Faridabad. Open from 1st Feb-17th Feb. Don’t miss it this year!
