The Bikaner Camel Festival is organized in the beautiful city of Bikaner, by the Rajasthan Tourism Department. The festival is organized every year in the month of January or late December to emphasize the value of ship of the desert – “Camel”. The two day festival is marked by different interesting activities.

This festival starts off with a magnificent procession of bedecked camels against the red sandstone backdrop of the Junagarh Fort (1588-1593) in the town. The festival starts with the motorcade of beautifully decorated camels. The procession heads towards the open sand grounds. Here, the festivities begin in earnest. The Camel Spectacle is held on the first day wherein the camel owners show off their Camels' decorations and jewellery. Camel dance performances are also held. A competition for best decorated camel, fur cutting design, camel milking and the best camel hair cut is organized. The camels display amazing footwork, dancing gracefully to the slightest direction of their drivers. Colourful bridles, bejeweled necks, jingling anklets and long, lanky camel shadows on dusky sands, cast a magical spell.

It is a colorful spectacle of beautifully decorated camels that fascinates the onlookers with their charm and grace.

The festivity advances to the open sand-spreads of the Polo Grounds, followed by camel races, camel milking, fur cutting design, the best breed competition, camel acrobatics, camel bands and so on.

The Bikaner Camel Festival activities define the culture and traditions of Rajasthan, and in the evening, you can enjoy the gypsy dance or folk songs of the state. No matter what part of the world you come from, the music will cast its spell on you. Evenings at the Bikaner Camel Festival are lit by campfires, as folk dancers and musicians lure droves of eager spectators. A desert fireworks spectacle concludes the festivities on the second evening. Enjoy the lustrous traditions of Rajasthan while celebrating the humble camel, ship of the desert, at the annual Bikaner Camel Festival.
