One of the most culturally sound and annually conducted events in the country, The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival is one of the most awaited events in the city. The festival which aims at exploring and exhibiting the beautiful cultural side of South Mumbai also provides a sturdy platform for artists to showcase their handiwork. Notably one of the largest events hosted by the city, it experiences a turnout in thousands which include both national and international tourists apart from the locals. The Kala Ghoda festival was started by the Kala Ghoda association and has been a strong event since its inception in 1999.
The KGAF 2015 is the festival’s 14th edition and is a melting pot of the brilliant colors, flavors and arts which are so peculiar to our city. The arena is spotted with sculptures based on different themes. These sculptures, models and statues are made out of wastes like water bottles, shards of class, tape, cd’s, foil and other such material that we usually throw away without so much as a glance. The festival exhibits the city’s unique talents and creations by budding entrepreneurs who believe in the power of originality over commercial rubbish. Festivals like these are a great way to encourage budding artists without having them compromise on any aspect of their art. Throngs of people visit the event and your work is likely to be acknowledged by the right people because it is out there for everyone to see.
The culture of Mumbai cannot be completed showcased without the addition of Mumbai’s favorite street food. You can expect to be pleasantly surprised by the variety of foods on display at the arena. The array of amazing foods lining the stall can be quite an experience for those wanting a slice of the city. Once you have had your fill of the art and craft at the display and checked into the gigs at the KGAF 2015, make your way into the food court and have a go at the delicious food! Don’t forget to put together your own album of the festival. Also, go with your partner or a bunch of friends, you are sure to have one helluva time at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival
