Festivals and Events in Palampur

Holi is the most important festival in Palampur and is celebrated with great gusto here. A festival of colour, Holi has special significance in this district. A day before Holi, the women make up baskets of small twig from the kamal tree, lined with thread, jaggery, and pots of coloured water. At night little ''holikas'' (bonfire) are lit all over the town. Next day before they commence playing Holi these baskets are offered to elderly men of the town.
