The Nagaur Fair 2013 Rajasthan or the Cattle Fair of Rajasthan is held in the months of January and February every year. The Fair, which goes on for eight days, is the second largest cattle fair of India and boasts of trading about 70,000 bullocks, camels, and horses every year. Nagaur, where the fair is organized, is one of the most charming Rajput towns in Rajasthan.
Thousands of animals, magnificently garlanded with lots of accessories, are gathered at the fair for trading. The owners, displaying their colorful turban and long moustaches, sell cows, bullocks, oxen, horses, and camels. In addition to the huge animal exhibition, the fair is also popular for its Mirchi Bazaar (red chilly market). The fair also trades wooden items, iron-crafts, camel leather accessories, and many other things.
Besides doing business, the visitors get excellent opportunity to enjoy a diversity of enthralling activities at the fair. The major sports held at the fair include tug-of-war, camel races, bullock races, and cockfights. While jugglers, puppeteers, storytellers, and campfire evenings make it a life time experience, one could feel the stillness of the desert sand amid the enchanting ambience created by the folk music of Jodhpur.
