Baneshwar Fair is organized in the month of January-February from Magh Shukla Ekadashi to Magh Shukla Poornima. The name of the fair has been kept on the Shiva Lingam in the Mahadev temple of Dungarpur, Rajasthan. Majority of the people attending the fair are Bhils, a tribal community of Rajasthan.
The temple of Mahadev remains open from 5.00 in the morning to 11.00 in the night during the Baneshwar Fair. The morning starts with the bathing of the Shiva Lingam, after which saffron is applied on it and an aarti is performed with burning incense. In the evening, ash is applied to the Linga and an aarti is performed again, but this time with a wick lamp. The night is livened up with the Bhils singing traditional folk songs around a bonfire. Offerings of pulses, rice, wheat flour, salt, jaggery, ghee, chilies, coconut, cash, etc are also made at the temple, by the devotees. The other celebrations of the Baneshwar Fair include magic shows, folk dances, acrobatic feats, animal shows, etc.
