Fairs and Festivals of Pangi

Phulaich Festival of PangiIn a community as inward looking and as geographically isolated as Pangi, expectedly it has turned to itself for social interaction and entertainment. Many of the celebrations of other parts of the country have no real meaning here. One of the main features of Pangi Valley fairs and festivals is folk dance. Mask dance and lion dance are also very famous.

Pangi, Fairs and FestivalsJukaru is perhaps the most important and distinctive of Pangi’s festivals and the entire populace joins in. Celebrations begin in the first week of February and carry on for a month. A time of merry making, dancing and music this enlivens the last spell of winter. One of the stories of its origin is that two of Pangi’s important landowners had a quarrel and sought to kill each other. A major fight was averted and they became reconciled to each other, which led to this festival of socializing. The other version is that this celebrates the end of winter and is that this celebrates the end of winter and is a thanksgiving to the gods for helping them survive through the hardship.
