🔥 Lohri Mela 2024

📅 January 14, 2024 | ⏰ 4 PM – 10 PM

📍 RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg, 375 York Avenue

Join us for the Lohri Mela 2024, a festival of harvest and culture, at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg on Saturday, January 13, 2024.

Lohri is a popular winter folk festival celebrated primarily in Northern India, especially in the Punjab region. It marks the end of the cold season and the beginning of longer and warmer days. It is also a time to express gratitude to the farmers and the Sun God for the bountiful crops.

Lohri Mela is a vibrant fair held in conjunction with the Punjabi festival of Lohri, primarily in the North Indian states of Punjab, Haryana, and Himachal Pradesh. While Lohri itself falls on January 13th or 14th, depending on the year, Lohri Melas can be held around that time, either leading up to the festival or on the day itself.

Here are some of the common attractions you can find at a Lohri Mela:

  • Food stalls: Sample a variety of Punjabi delicacies, from savory chole bhature and kulcha to sweet jalebis and gulab jamuns.
  • Crafts and shopping: Explore stalls selling vibrant Punjabi handicrafts, clothing, jewelry, and souvenirs.
  • Cultural performances: Immerse yourself in the rich Punjabi culture through live music, dance shows, and storytelling sessions.

Lohri Mela is a vibrant and festive event that captures the essence of Lohri – a celebration of harvest, hope, and community. Be prepared for a night of laughter, music, delicious food, and unforgettable memories.
